FAO, Ministry of Agriculture launch
CountrySTAT platform in Azerbaijan
The Ministry of
Agriculture of Azerbaijan and the United Nations Food and Agriculture
Organization (FAO) have launched today the CountrySTAT platform in Azerbaijan,
which is an innovative tool for sharing agriculture and food security
information, using a cutting-edge technology called FENIX.
CountrySTAT is a web-based information system on food and agriculture which
provides easy access to statistical data of good quality that can aid
decision-makers in better, evidence-based policy-making and greater efficiency
in development politics. Nationally owned and maintained, it serves as a
one-stop centre that enables the collection and harmonisation of timely and
reliable official data from different sources and their integration in a common
location. Data provided through CountrySTAT serves researchers, policymakers,
development organisations, and the private sector to design and implement better
policy and investments in agriculture.
