Objetivos

a) General objective

Make progress in the definition of a regional concept of data management in order to propose
enabling elements for its implementation and mainstreaming by NSS, particularly NSOs, taking into
account the particularities, challenges and different starting points of the countries of Latin America and
the Caribbean.


b) Specific objectives

  • Establish the core aspects of the concept of data management and its applicability in the countries of the region.
  • Assess the forms and conditions of access of NSOs to administrative records and other data sources external to the institution, and identify the most common access mechanisms, based on the work already done (Generic Law on Official Statistics for Latin America, Working Group on Institution-building, among others).
  • Create spaces for dialogue at the regional and intraregional levels (through virtual or face-to- face seminars) to exchange perspectives on the concept of data management in the region and to consider the best available experiences and practices.
  • Establish proposals for actions to move towards the implementation of data stewardship in the various national contexts, examining the ethical frameworks of official statistics.
  • Create recommendations on the conceptualization and translation of data management to facilitate greater understanding and possible implementation in the region.
  • Contribute to the mainstreaming of the concept by commenting on the documents resulting from the work of the working groups adopted for the 2022–2023 biennium.
  • Determine the relationship between data management and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
