This side event to the United Nations Statistical Commission, organized by the FAO in partnership with the UN Economic Commission in Africa (UNECA) and PARIS21, took place on Thursday, 10 February 2022.

The event aimed at presenting the potential role of the Global Strategy to Improve Agriculture and Rural Statistics (GSARS), in the development of agricultural statistics in the 25 beneficiary countries. The event featured national presentations from representatives from Ghana and Mozambique who shared their experience of introduction of the GSARS plan in their countries, how it fits with the national strategies of development of agricultural statistics and with opportunities offered with the future implementation of 50x2030 Initiative.

The Q&A session provided the space for participants to ask questions to the presenters, as well as to share their own challenges and expectations.
