Maldives

Background

Under the joint UN Programme on Low Emission Climate Resilience Development (LECReD), UNFPA Maldives supports the Atoll and Island Councils of Laamu Atoll to establish and manage their data and knowledge systems. 

UNFPA has been working closely with National Bureau of Statistics and other sectorial ministries to establish data standards and broker easy access to available local level data for the Councils. Additionally we are supporting the establishment of an administrative data entry and management portal and the strengthening of the data management capacity of the Councils. The programme, commenced on November 2013 is expected to be completed by November 2016.
