Event description
A multi-stakeholder dialogue on the uncertainties that disaggregated data and new measurement approaches can create and how to manage them.

About this Event

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is driving an increased focus on measurement. This includes work to strengthen data collection and develop approaches that offer new insights.

Disaggregated data is vital to understanding how progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is translating into improved lives. However, the insights made possible by disaggregated data and new measurement approaches can also create uncertainties for stakeholders. Managing uncertainties and sensitivities, including about privacy, can support more quality data being made publicly available and accessible to accelerate achievement of the SDGs.

This high-level event brings together individuals playing key roles within government, multilateral organisations and civil society to share approaches, issues and opportunities based on their experience and expertise. Dialogue and discussion with knowledgeable participants will surface wider insights and strategies from diverse contexts. A short discussion paper has been developed, outlining some of the topics to be discussed.

The event will be held under the Chatham House Rule to enable sharing and documentation of emerging experience and learning.

Please join us on Monday 15 July 2019, 9:30 am to 11:30 am (breakfast and networking from 9.00 am) at UN Women, 220 East 42nd Street, New York.
