2024 Virtual Trainings on SDG Indicator 2.4.1 “Proportion of Agricultural Area under Productive and Sustainable Agriculture”

Virtual Event, 11/06/2024 - 04/10/2024

From June to October 2024, FAO will organize a series of virtual training workshops on SDG indicator 2.4.1 “Proportion of Agricultural Area under Productive and Sustainable Agriculture” for which FAO is the custodian agency.

The goal is to provide government officials responsible for monitoring the indicator capacity development on the methodology, data collection and analysis relevant to sustainable food and agriculture.

Information will be provided on appropriate data collection instruments, namely farm surveys, including how to use these to provide the data needed for the SDG 2.4.1 sub-indicators and to identify the data gaps faced by countries.

More specifically, sessions will be organized between June and October 2024 to:

  • Provide technical training to build capacity of the national staff on SDG indicator 2.4.1 farm survey-based methodology, data collection, compilation and interpretation
  • Identify available national and sub-national farm level and other data useful to analyze sustainable food and agriculture
  • Understand the data gaps
  • Introduce the proxy indicator for interim reporting on SDG 2.4.1
  • Discuss the country plans to collect data on the indicator in the short/medium/long term

The online trainings will be composed of participants from a group of countries and will offer an opportunity to share good practices and experiences. Furthermore, the trainings will provide participants a platform to discuss and share their strategies for overcoming the potential challenges regarding data collection, analysis and reporting of SDG indicator 2.4.1.
