Within the framework of its Statistical Capacity Building (StatCaB) Programme, SESRIC, in collaboration with the Turkish Statistical Institute (TURKSTAT), will organise a Training Course on “Agriculture Statistics” on 23-25 July 2024.

The training course will be provided by a competent expert from TURKSTAT for the benefit of the National Statistical Offices (NSOs) and other relevant stakeholders in the National Statistical Systems (NSSs) of OIC countries.

The main objective of the training course is to enhance the technical capacities of the participants in understanding and applying statistical methodologies and best practices in the area of agricultural statistics. The following topics to be covered during the training course:

  • Crop production statistics
  • Livestock and animal production statistics
  • Organic production statistics
  • Agricultural price statistics
  • Agricultural accounts
  • Statistical farm register and administrative data use in agricultural statistics
  • Agricultural census and structural statistics, including typology of holdings
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) applications
  • Agro-environmental indicators

The StatCaB Programme was initiated in early 2007 as the flagship capacity development programme of SESRIC. Within the framework of the StatCaB Programme, the Centre collects information from the NSOs of OIC member countries through the biennial StatCaB Questionnaire, assesses their statistical training needs and capacities, matches these needs and capacities, and organises statistical capacity development activities between the beneficiary and provider countries.
