Regional Roundtable on the World Programme for the Census of Agriculture 2020 (WCA 2020)

22-26 May 2017, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago

This meeting was part of a series of regional meetings to present the World Programme for the Census of Agriculture 2020 (WCA 2020) to FAO member countries.  

Purpose 
The meeting disseminated the new WCA 2020 to selected member countries in the FAO Caribbean region. The objective was to help participants gain a deeper understanding of the new FAO recommendations and international standards that guide the implementation of agricultural censuses between 2016 and 2025. 

The Programme presented conceptual approaches to be adopted for collecting data on many emerging subjects and some operational aspects of census taking. Plans of the countries for implementing the next round of agricultural census and surveys were also reviewed.

Participants
The participants were professional statisticians and census leaders who are likely to play a role in the planning and execution of next agricultural census in their respective countries. A total of 14 countries have been invited to the meeting, including Belize, Guyana, Suriname, Antigua & Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Haiti, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago.
