The UN Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) hosts a celebration for Africa Statistics Day 2022 on the theme “Strengthening data system by modernizing the production and use of agricultural statistics with a view of informing policies to improve resilience in agriculture, nutrition, and food security on the African Continent.” The event is organized in collaboration with the African Development Bank (AfDB), the African Union Commission (AUC), and the Food and Agricultural Organization of the UN (FAO).
Oliver Chinganya, Director of the African Centre for Statistics at the ECA, explains, “the webinar intends to inspire our thinking on the need to strongly advocate for statistics daily – especially agricultural statistics given their critical role in shaping the farm economy as a more sustainable livelihood.”
