Technical Advisory Group
The Technical Advisory Group provides advice and peer review services for the
consideration of the Partnership Council.
Professionals are invited to the Group based on technical expertise in agricultural or rural
statistics, including survey methodologies, data management and data analysis.
At least half of Group members come from academic institutions, such as universities and
research institutes, and at least one member is a gender expert because improving
gender-relevant data in agriculture is an important objective of 50x2030.
