Name of event:Introduction to International Intellectual Property Law
Description:UNITAR in partnership with UN Statistics Division (UNSD) developed a problem-solving toolkit “StaTact” in support of monitoring the Sustainable Development Goals with donor support received by UNITAR. StaTact is a web-based tool developed to support short-term statistical planning in the context of monitoring the SDGs. As the name suggests, it provides a tactical approach to addressing selected SDG-related data gaps that require urgent action. Its main strengths are a collaborative environment for multi-stakeholder discussion and a problem-solving methodology that helps you set up a Working Group and take it through three key stages such as a problem statement, problem analysis, action plan, and an implementation interface. The analysis stage uses the Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM) to analyse the processes of data production and the Generic Activity Model for Statistical Organizations (GAMSO) to map the institutional arrangements that govern these processes. The end product is a realistic low-cost tactic action plan with assigned responsibilities, a timeline, and a budget. The implementation interface enables the Working Group to track in real-time progress on this plan.
StaTact is typically coordinated by appointed focal points or national administrators from National Statistical Offices who can create Working Groups upon the request of members of National Statistical Systems or Government in general. Working Group members are invited by Group Leaders and can be from Government or outside as relevant for a specific data problem at hand.
