Regional basic administrator training for GCC countries (Gulf Cooperation Council)

26/01/2014 - 30/01/2014, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

National Bureau of Statistics of the United Arab Emirates, in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) will organize the Regional Training Workshop for the Countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

The purpose of the project is to scale up the current data exchange framework and create a Global Data Sharing Network (in the spirit of the “Open Data” concept and approach). Network resources such as datasets, coding systems and classifications, GIS layers, satellite images and text (but also ready-made products such as charts, maps and reports) will be made accessible through their metadata. Applications and tools will be made available through the network for data aggregations, statistical and geospatial analyses, creation of reports and dissemination of large volumes of data.
