About

Metrics that Make a Difference: International Conference on the Policy Uses of Well-being and Sustainable Development Indicators in Latin America and the Caribbean



Measuring development is not an end in itself: for development metrics to make a difference in people’s lives, they need to be used to inform policies and programmes for achieving sustainable and equitable well-being. The purpose of this conference is to bring together statisticians and policy makers, as well as academics and representatives from civil society and the private sector to share perspectives from all stages of the policy process on how to maximise the use of multidimensional indicators for improving people’s lives in Latin American and the Caribbean. Over two days, the conference will showcase relevant knowledge, experience and best practice from across the LAC region and internationally. 
 
The conference is being held in the context of the EU Regional Facility for Development in Transition, and specifically as part of the joint EC-OECD-ECLAC project on Policy Metrics for Well-being and Sustainable Development in Latin America and the Caribbean. It is being co-organised by the OECD, UN ECLAC, the European Commission, DANE, DNP and the Universidad del Rosario.
