The workshop aims to provide a venue to discuss the various tools and techniques towards building a Philippine/Country Data Revolution Roadmap for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which will be an integral part of the Philippine Statistical Development Plan (PSDP) to be formulated in accordance to the new Philippine Development Plan (PDP) and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In particular, the workshop will explore the potential of the Philippine data ecosystem to address new and emerging demands for the sustainable development of data and examine the possibilities and constraints of using new and alternative data sources such as big data, open data, private sector and citizen generated data, registries and administrative data (e.g. civil registration, business permits, among others). New and innovative approaches and improvements in the existing surveys and administrative data systems of the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) and other government agencies in the Philippine Statistical System (PSS) shall likewise be investigated to enhance the essential data resources to support the monitoring of the SDGs.
Further, the workshop shall discuss and recommend a framework for the SDG Data Revolution Roadmap in the Philippines which will serve as guide for the PSS in the implementation of various statistical development programs until 2030.
