The Executive Secretary of ECLAC, Alicia Bárcena, presents a new version of the CEPALSTAT platform. This is the main portal for accessing statistical information collected on the countries of the region, organized and published by ECLAC. The presentation will be held virtually.


Statistical information is a key element for defining public policies for sustainable development in the countries of the region.

As part of the implementation of innovative solutions for the dissemination of data in the region, and in line with the Data Strategy of the Secretary-General for Action by Everyone, Everywhere launched by the United Nations, ECLAC has revamped its CEPALSTAT data portal to meet the demands of an increasingly connected public who use search engines and social networks to Access large volumes of robust data that can be used to analyse a number of development-related issues.
