La implementación de la Agenda 2030 ha representado uno de los retos más desafiantes de las últimas décadas. Por la demanda de nuevos y más detallados datos, la incursión de herramientas tecnológicas de alto impacto y la creación de mecanismos de monitoreo en tiempo real tanto para los compromisos políticos como estadísticos. También porque ha evidenciado la clara necesidad de aunar esfuerzos entre actores y crear alianzas que promuevan la cooperación multilateral.

América Latina y el Caribe ha puesto énfasis en repensar los modelos tradicionales de desarrollo, partiendo de la identificación de los progresos realizados por cada país y los instrumentos de política pública utilizados para abordar sus necesidades. La región, igualmente, ha buscado promover el intercambio tanto de experiencias como de lecciones aprendidas entre sus países, aprovechando la heterogeneidad de prioridades establecidas en cada territorio. 

Sin embargo, la distancia geográfica es un limitante para los encuentros que permiten llevar a cabo este tipo de ejercicios. Por ello, la Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data y Cepei, en calidad de su aliado estratégico para América Latina y el Caribe, han organizado tres webinarios en español, bajo la serie “Datos para el desarrollo en Latinoamérica: avances en el monitoreo de la Agenda 2030”, con el fin de facilitar una comunicación directa entre sus miembros y apoyar los procesos de intercambio de experiencias.

En la primera sesión se presentó la relevancia y uso de los datos generados por la ciudadanía para la construcción de políticas públicas oportunas. También se expusieron casos de estudios que evidencian las oportunidades que brindan los datos generados por los ciudadanos para complementar las estadísticas oficiales. Vea la grabación aquí.

En la segunda edición se expusieron casos de estudio de Colombia México que evidenciaron las oportunidades de trabajo conjunto entre el sector privado y público para aprovechar registros empresariales como complemento de las estadísticas oficiales e insumo para cerrar brechas de información. Vea la grabación aquí.

En la tercera, y última edición de la serie, se resaltó la importancia de los censos como instrumento de política pública y se identificaron buenas prácticas para la implementación, interpretación y uso de los datos recolectados durante el censo. Vea la grabación aquí.

The implementation of the 2030 Agenda has represented one of the most enriching challenges of recent decades. It created a demand for generating new and more detailed data, the introduction of high-impact technological tools, and the creation of real-time monitoring mechanisms for both political and statistical commitments. As a result, there is a clear need to join forces between actors and create partnerships that promote multilateral cooperation.

Latin America and the Caribbean has rethought traditional development models, based on country progress and the public policy instruments used to address their needs. The region has also sought to promote the exchange of experiences and lessons learned among the countries of the region, taking advantage of the heterogeneity of priorities established in each territory.

However, the geographical distance poses limitations to such meetings in-person. Therefore, the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data and Cepei, as its strategic partner for Latin America and the Caribbean, have organized “Data for development in Latin America: progress in monitoring the 2030 Agenda,” a series of three webinars in Spanish, which aim to facilitate direct communication among its members and support the processes of exchanging experiences.

This first session presented the relevance of citizen-generated data for improved public policies that respond to citizens' present needs. The webinar also highlighted case studies that illustrate how citizen-generated data can complement official statistics. Please watch the recording here.

The second webinar highlighted how Colombia and Mexico are making use of private records to complement official statistics and reduce data gaps. Please watch the recording here.

The third, and last, webinar of the series “Data for development in Latin America” will highlight the importance of censuses as policy instruments. It will also identify good practices for the implementation, interpretation, and use of data collected during censuses. Please watch the recording here.

** The Global Partnership also kicked-off a webinar series on population data starting in Autumn 2019. More information is available through our website. **
