A new Website www.unctad.info/wsd has been launched ahead of the first-ever celebration of World Statistics Day 20 October, marking the importance of official statistics for today’s economic, social and environmental agenda.
Because it has the world’s highest concentration of international organizations, Geneva will host a conference on World Statistics Day to provide an interface between statistical practitioners and policy makers, academia and civil society at the European headquarters of the United Nations.
WMO is one of the partners of World Statistics Day and will participate in the conference. WMO provides the international collaboration platform for collecting meteorological and hydrological data related to the various components of the climate system.
