From 15th to 17th January 2019, the the UN Statistics Department in collaboration with DFID and the National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda jointly organized a workshop on SDGs metadata.

The workshop brought together staff responsible for compilation and reporting on SGDs from  NISR as well as representative from line ministries and institutions that deal with data on SDGs indicators.

The objective of the workshop was to support Rwanda National Statistical System’s ability to compile metadata for SDG indicators through knowledge transfer and practical exercises targeted towards working level participants.

During the workshop participants discussed and had exercises on SDG monitoring, coordination mechanisms and user engagements and had an overview to metadata and importance of metadata among others.
