The 3rd OECD World Forum on "Statistics, Knowledge and Policy" was held on 27 – 30 October 2009 in Busan, Korea. Under the theme of "Charting Progress, Building Visions, Improving Life," it was an opportunity to re-identify what progress means in the 21st century and it contributed to establish comprehensive indicator sets to measure this newly conceptualized "progress" and to share the best practices of evidence-based policy making.
The event was organized by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Statistics Korea (KOSTAT) in cooperation with the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC), the European Commission (EC), the World Bank (WB), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Bank of Korea.
Dr. Savaş Alpay, Director General of SESRIC, chaired the Session titled “Fostering the measurement of societal progress: the role of ICT and training”.
