Statistical Capacity Building — Funding

The ISI and its Associations actively encourage participation of developing country members and young statisticians where possible for various conferences, including the ISI World Statistics Congress and Association conferences.

In recent times, we have obtained funding for developing country participants through the World Bank Trust Fund for Statistical Capacity Building, AFDB, EFTA, the NASS-ERS Fund, and others on occasions. Each funding opportunity comes with its own sets of rules and conditions with regard to the type of paper or presentation that is required as a contribution to the scientific programme.
