PowerPoint Presentation Programmes and Innovations to Strengthen the Demographic Evidence Base for Implementation of the ICPD POA and the 2030 Agenda Rachel Snow, ScD Chief, Population and Development Branch UNFPA New demands for data To achieve the 2030 Agenda, every country must be able to: • Identify and locate the vulnerable • Identify interventions that result in the greatest improvements in their welfare • Monitor progress across the breadth of the sustainable development goals and targets. Challenges Many developing countries will face steep challenges in redressing population inequalities: • They lack core demographic data • They rely heavily on DHS, which are vital yet provide limited information on mobile populations and people under 15 or over 49, have long gaps between time points • National data systems are under-developed, and/or heavily oriented to data production • Inadequate attention to use of data for national planning and monitoring progress in sustainable development. (...) Populations & Climate Risk Data in the face of Instability • Growing interest in “Big Data” for real-time estimations of number and locations of people • For example, Flowminder used call-detail records to locate population movements after the Haiti earthquake, • Afghanistan Given no census in Afghanistan since 1979, Flowminder and UNFPA using satellite imagery of buildings, settlements estimated population; • Google search data shown to correlate with migrant flow data into Australia Forward: Pursue Synergies • Ensure support for CRVS, the 2020 Census Round, SDGs, speak to dissemination and use • Prioritize long-term growth of national institutions, public and private • Ensure new generation of population & development experts – innovation • Raise the national and global investment in national statistical systems Fulfillment of the ICPD Current focus is on data for the SDGs Monitoring SDGs – is a by-product of strong national data systems – which ensure national capacity to monitor the fulfillment of all development commitments, including the ICPD

More than 80 per cent of the rivers and 75 per cent of the lakes assessed are polluted, some heavily. For example, the Syr Darya River, whose basin is shared by Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, is heavily polluted by agriculture drainage water and industrial wastewater. (...) In most EECCA countries, owing to a lack of appropriate legislation and institutional capacity, there are no comprehensive basin-wide water management or water monitoring programmes. Increased cooperation and harmonization of legislation and monitoring and assessment practices, along with the establishment of transboundary commissions, could improve water conditions in the region.

Intelligent sensors, networks, devices, and applications enable cities to monitor energy usage, traffic congestion, air quality, quality of city services, climate changes, natural disasters and more. (...) Predictive insights have successfully already allowed city officials to monitor damaged infrastructure before it collapses, locate missing persons based on information from their IoT enabled trackers or even assist in policy detective works. (...) Similar to 47 London, Copenhagen, Denmark has implemented intelligent sensors to monitor the city’s bike traffic in real time, providing valuable data that would improve bike routes and cyclists’ experience in the city.
