Seminar on the Global Statistical and Geospatial Framework - Principle 3

14 May 2024|Event

The objective of this virtual seminar is to provide Member States and interested parties with the conceptual foundations related to the five principles of the United Nations Global Statistical and Geospatial Framework, to enhance the use of integrated statistical and geospatial information.

The Global Statistical Geospatial Framework (GSGF) enables a range of data to be integrated from both statistical and geospatial communities and, through the application of its five Principles and supporting key elements, permits the production of harmonized and standardized geospatially enabled statistical data. The resulting data can then be integrated with statistical, geospatial, and other information to inform and facilitate data-driven and evidence-based decision making to support local, sub-national, national, regional, and global development priorities and agendas.

Principle 3: Common geographies for dissemination of statistics
  1. Provide guidance to Member States and stakeholders, on the implementation of the resulting Global Statistical and Geospatial Framework - (GSGF).
  2. To strengthen interrelationships with relevant groups in the statistical and geospatial communities.
  3. Provide Member State representatives responsible for geostatistical integration the opportunity to learn about challenges around statistical and geospatial integration and establish work plans that identify and promote solutions in a participatory and inclusive manner.
  4. Implement and operationalize in the Member States, the Global Statistical and Geospatial Framework -GSGF, as a tool to obtain geospatially enabled statistical data for the 2030 Agenda, the 2020 Population Census Round and issues related to climate change and disaster resilience, among others.
