Background

The creation of the Statistical Coordination Group for the 2030 Agenda in Latin America and the Caribbean responds to the request of the SCA-ECLAC member states made during the eighth meeting of the Conference in November 2015 to define a new governance scheme for generate a regional implementation plan that will gradually cover the information requirements derived from the 2030 Agenda in the region.

This is how the Executive Committee of the SCA at its fifteenth meeting in June 2016 approves the creation of the Statistical Coordination Group as a joint working mechanism to address coordination actions around statistical information related to the SDGs.

 

Activities

The Group meets twice a year in person or virtually, taking advantage of the regional or international instances existing in the annual calendar of statistical meetings of the countries of the region. Between these meetings, it carries out its work through an electronic platform set up for the Group. Presents an annual report to the Executive Committee of the Statistical Conference of the Americas of ECLAC, which in turn will transmit them to the CEA, and will address the Conference's recommendations on its activities.
