Monitoring of SDGs under Agenda 2030 is the focus for national statistical systems which has huge data demands.

Human resource management and appropriate skill development is essential to meet this challenge. This webinar is being held as preparation for the 7th Committee of Statistics.

The aim is to share knowledge and identify priority actions for member States, UN entities and development partners to transform human resource management and skill development efforts to build statistical institutions in Asia and the Pacific.
