Working documents |
This document sets forth the programmes of regional and international cooperation activities of the Statistical Conference of the Americas of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) to be carried out by the working groups of the Conference in the biennium 2020–2021.
In 2019 the secretariat spearheaded a consultation among the national statistical offices in the region in order to identify the themes of greatest relevance for regional statistical development. On the basis of the themes identified, all offices were asked to submit proposals for outputs to be developed over the next biennium, which were then offered for a vote. Thus, the proposals prioritized by the countries yielded a set of 11 outputs, which are presented here. The working groups of the Statistical Conference of the Americas for the biennium 2020–2021 will carry out the activities needed to produce these outputs, in accordance with the resolution adopted at the tenth meeting of the Conference (Santiago, 19–21 November 2019). Unlike in previous periods, therefore, the working groups in this biennium will each focus on a single output, in order to target efforts more strongly and optimize resources and efforts.
