The three-day workshop included seven sessions on international requirements and national experiences in relevant statistics and policy, data governance, as well as two thematic sessions on climate change and disaster-related statistics, with a focus on the Global Set on Climate Change Statistics and Indicators and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. The workshop established that Lesotho has good basis for the strengthening of a National Statistics System comprehensively covering the data requirements for the Sendai Framework and the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) of the Paris Agreement as well as other national and international commitments related to climate change and disasters. At the end of the workshop, all participants discussed the conclusions and recommendations.
