Prognoz to Help ESCWA Improve Statistical Capacity

2 March 2016

The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) has launched a collaboration with Prognoz, a software vendor engaged to implement the ESCWA Online Statistical Information System (EOSIS).

EOSIS will provide ESCWA and its member States with powerful tools to process and analyze statistics across diverse data sets for the Arab region, including national accounts; external trade statistics; industrial statistics; financial statistics and prices; population statistics; health statistics; education statistics; and culture statistics. The solution will also provide users with flexibility to generate a variety of reports on any particular topic.

Once implemented, EOSIS will significantly streamline and simplify workflows for statistical data processing and analysis.

ESCWA is one of five regional commissions of the United Nations working under the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The Beirut-based Commission promotes economic and social development through regional and subregional cooperation and integration in tune with the needs and priorities of the Arab region.
