The UNODC-KOSTAT Centre of Excellence for Statistics on Crime and Criminal Justice in Asia and the Pacific (CoE), in collaboration with UNODC Headquarters, will host a side event titled ‘Innovative Methodology to Monitor SDG 16’ at the 8th Session of the ESCAP Committee to continue to enhance the capacity of the Asia-Pacific Member States and Associate Members in the areas of crime and criminal justice statistics.
As the custodian entity of SDG indicators predominantly found in SDG 16: Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions, UNODC continuously develops tools to enhance the quality and quantity of data available at the national level; this side event will showcase recent UNODC methodological developments to ensure high-quality data for evidence-based policymaking.
The three methodological tools which will be presented at the side event are:
- SDG 16 Survey Initiative
- International Classification of Crime for Statistical Purposes
- Statistical framework for measuring the gender-related killing of women and girls (also
referred to as “femicide/feminicide”)
The Side Event will be held in a hybrid format, on 23 August 2022 for 60 minutes, starting 16:00 (UTC+7).
