Inter-agency and Expert Group Meeting on Improving Disability Statistics in the Sustainable Development Goals

Cairo, Egypt

The key objective is to implement standard methods to produce, analyze and communicate better data for enhanced SDGs monitoring and reporting, and share national and regional experiences and facilitate inter-regional cooperation. 
The meeting will help in achieving a common and improved understanding among the participants about the various technical issues and challenges of producing comparable and harmonized disability data. The meeting will also benefit from the user-producer dialogue to develop the Arab Disability Framework Indicator and related Metadata Handbook.  It will also provide valuable inputs for the continued development of guidelines and training material addressing disability statistics for measuring and monitoring development indicators including the SDGs.
