CountrySTAT training

CountrySTAT brings together national statistical offices and ministries of agriculture to exchange their knowledge and enhance cooperation between them. In each country, the national government makes a substantial contribution to deployment, maintenance and training. Training courses and workshops take place in different geographic locations.


The training provides participants with useful skills and knowledge in the handling of the CountrySTAT platform and framework, enabling them to set up a CountrySTAT system in their National Statistics Offices. Participants develop the skills and get practice administering CountrySTAT Web sites including back-end preparations. Target trainees are professionals of National Statistics Offices and Ministries of Agriculture.
