    Capacity development

    Capacity development (CD) is a key focus area for NIPN. This page presents the capacity development activities conducted by NIPN platforms at the national and global level.

    To support the operationalisation of CD, C4N-NIPN Global Coordination carried out an exhaustive CD mapping of NIPN’s activities. The aims of the mapping were to collect NIPN country platform’s CD resources and to store them in a central, accessible repository. Furthermore, it was important to identify generic and country-specific capacity-strengthening priorities and to assess user satisfaction and use of capacity strengthening tools.

    The mapping exercise revealed capacity-strengthening needs in several areas including: ensuring data quality standards, tools, and expertise for the process of verifying data quality, generating policy questions, defining knowledge gaps and priorities for statisticians and data analysts, and in packaging data for use in decision-making. You can read the full report HERE.

    The country CD activities are updated on a yearly basis. You can find CD activities on data management, communication, data analysis, and gender, among other topics, HERE.
