Michael Hage, sub-regional coordinator at FAO for North Africa, inaugurated the programme. He affirmed FAO’s readiness to contribute towards strengthening the capacity of national counterparts towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The training programme focused on two main components, communication and statistics and data collection.

In addition to the theoretical aspect, the training programme also provided the participants with a hands-on experience in using FAO tools in statistics and data collection, which is seen to enable them to perform their duties with a high level of professionalism.

According to FAO, these training sessions are part of a two-year ambitious training project, covering various topics:

· Learning needs assessment
