  •    -   create a dialogue space between Producers and Users of official Statistics;
  •    -   engage the public and private sector in production, dissemination and use of  ​​administrative and official statistics;
  •    -   enhance the capacity of academicians, local government and media to access and use official statistics for evidence-based decision making and reporting;
  •    -   disseminate statistical publications.


2.      The theme for this year is: “Strengthening data systems by modernising the production and use of agricultural statistics: informing policies with a view to improving resilience in agriculture, nutrition and food security in Africa".
