UNICEF Workshop on Collecting, Analyzing, and Using Data on Children with Disabilities

11/07/2022 - 21/07/2022

UNICEF is organizing a Workshop on Collecting, Analyzing, and Using Data on Children with  Disabilities.

The Concept Note can be accessed here.

The purpose of this workshop is to enhance knowledge on the main issues relating to the collection, analysis, interpretation and use of data on children with disabilities. In particular, participants will gain understanding of data collection methods and tools, as well as the ability to read and interpret data. Finally, the workshop will strengthen the capacity of participants to disseminate and use data effectively to promote the rights of children with disabilities.

The workshop is intended primarily for representatives of National Statistical Offices, Organizations of Persons with Disabilities and others working on data collection, analysis and dissemination. The training is made possible thanks to financial support from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of the Government of Australia, and is organized with the involvement of the Washington Group on Disability Statistics. More information is available in the attached concept note.  

The sessions will be delivered in a virtual live format via Zoom with 3 hour daily sessions. The workshop will take place in two cohorts to accommodate the various time zones. Participants can only register for one cohort.

Cohort 1 will run from 11 to 21 July starting at 8:00 am EDT.

Cohort 2 will run from 7 to 17 November starting at 9:00 pm EST.

Simultaneous interpretation will be provided in International Sign, Arabic, French and Spanish as needed. Additional languages may be added depending on the number of participant requests. Please note that all written materials will be in English only.
