Research project

Collaboration with Latin America and the Caribbean UNFPA Regional office

Project overview

This project will organise and run a workshop and training in Panama to strengthen the capacity of NSOs in Latin America and Caribbean countries. NSO staff will be trained on preparing necessary input datasets for our preEA Tool package and be provided with step-by-step guides to run the tool independently.

Participants will have the opportunity to be familiarised with other tools in the preEA Tool package that can help them with resource and logistic calculation. This will enable them to incorporate these tools into their workflow for upcoming censuses. The workshop will also provide opportunities to receive feedback from census experts in the region and improve future applications of the tool.

This project is a winner of a Faculty of Environmental and Life Sciences Higher Education Impact Fund
