Second Wye City Conference

11 - 12 June 2009, Rome, Italy

The second meeting of the Group will consist of four half-day sessions with a focus on issues related to the revision of the handbook Rural Households' Livelihood and Well-being: Statistics on Rural Development and Agriculture Household Income. In particular, sessions will cover emerging issues in a changing rural world and related data needs; and the use of new technological tools in rural statistics with a concern on specific characteristics at different levels of development.

Each session will include a Session Organiser and Chair, an invited keynote speaker and a number of discussion papers. The papers might focus on matters such as:

What are the changing rural paradigm and corresponding emerging issues and data needs?
What results can the technological innovation and new tools achieve in rural development statistics?
What are the issues related to developing a supplement to handbook? (considering in particular country characteristics at various levels of development).

Objectives
Support the U.N. Global Strategy to Improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics by highlighting international needs and opportunities to improve statistics on rural and farm households, and strengthen the process of collecting and disseminating statistics on rural and farm households in OECD and developing countries.

Review and discuss revisions to the Wye Group Handbook on Rural Households’ Livelihood and Well-Being, and preparation of a Supplement to the Handbook on issues related to agricultural and rural statistics in developing countries.
