The 2020 Workshop on Statistical Data Dissemination and Communication is planed to be held back-to-back with the UNECE Workshop on HRMT for Statistical Organisations. It is scheduled for 7-9 September 2020 in Lisbon Portugal. However, due to shortage of staff and the Covid19 pandemic, it is currently on hold. By early June, a finial decision is expected.
The Strategic Communication Framework, was completed with several new elements:
- Internal Communications
- Employee Engagement
- Mission, Vision and values
- Stakeholder Engagement (including Stakeholder mapping, planning, evaluation of success and considerations for the successful public acceptance of a National Data Strategy)
These parts were the output of phase II of the UNECE Strategic Communication Framework Project that was part of the HLG-MOS 2019 work programme. They will be combined with the publication from phase 1 of the project, that was developed by a UNECE Task Force composed of experts from national and international statistical organizations, and endorsed by the Heads of statistical offices of more than 60 countries, showcases the value of official statistics and provides recommendations for statistical offices on ways to promote, measure and communicate this value. It was endorsed by the CES in 2019 and presented at the 2019 UNECE workshop on Dissemination and Communication of Statistics. The framework and all its components are offered as a guideline and are not intended to be prescriptive. Statistical organizations are invited to use the framework in its entirety, or to use elements that help support their organization’s business model and brand.
