This seminar is organized by Statistics Division and Sub-regional Office for the Caribbean of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), in collaboration with PARIS21, in support of the United Nations Development Account and Escazú Agreement.

This event will bring stakeholders from Statistical Offices and Ministries of Environment of Caribbean countries to discuss the assessment and strategic capacity development of their climate change data ecosystems (CCDEs).

The subregional event will adopt a hybrid format with face-to-face sessions for country representatives and virtual participation of regional and global experts on climate change data.

The objectives of the meeting:

  • Understand better the critical climate change data capacity development areas that enable a coherent and sustained functioning of a climate change data ecosystem in low-resource and low-capacity contexts
  • Identify emerging good practices in the Caribbean region and promote knowledge sharing
  • Showcase new innovative tools developed by ECLAC to promote sustained technical capacity building for climate change and environment indicators
