  • AGPROD: Support in preparing survey tools for agricultural production surveys;
  • TOOLS: Technical assistance on the use of statistical software tools for data processing and analysis;
  • Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI): Training and support to the country in developing, implementing, and maintaining CAPI-based surveys to improve data quality and cost-efficiency of agricultural surveys;
  • Dissemination: Develop awareness on the importance of statistical dissemination policies and build the skills required for data dissemination and preservation programmes.
En RDC, une série d'ateliers de formation facilités par le programme GSARS s'est achevée avec succès. Dirigé avec diligence par l'expert Abdoulaye BA, le dernier d’une série de trois ateliers techniques a été organisé du 23 au 28 octobre 2023 à Kinshasa pour encourager l'amélioration de l'accessibilité et de l'utilisation des microdonnées d’enquêtes agricoles. Des thématiques telles que les techniques de communication et de diffusion statistiques ou encore le standard « Open Data » avaient pu être abordés lors des deux premières formations (organisées en Juin et Juillet 2023).
