Description:

This publication presents the outcome of the twenty-fourth session of the Asia and Pacific Commission on Agricultural Statistics held in Da Lat, Viet Nam from 8 to 12 October 2012. Attended by over 65 delegates from 21 member countries, the session assessed both the current status of food and agriculture statistics in member countries and progress in monitoring country capacity to produce agricultural statistics. The session was informed about progress made in implementation of the global strategy to improve agricultural and rural statistics in the region and the World Programme for the Census of Agriculture (WCA) 2010, including recommendations for improving WCA 2020. Other topics discussed were new methodological developments in food security statistics to ensure a more realistic estimation of the undernourished population and recent advances in economic, social and environmental statistics in the agricultural sector, such as recent efforts by FAO to include greenhouse gas emission data in FAOSTAT.
