ICAS is an annual conference that focuses on fostering and leveraging best practices and research in response to the changing needs and opportunities for agricultural statistics. The conference brings together experts from around the world to share research and operational accomplishments, and to explore the latest methodological innovations by countries and development partners.

For 25 years, ICAS has been a great place for researchers, economists, statisticians, and scientists from around the world to explore best practices and methodological innovations for agricultural data. This year’s conference is particularly meaningful as it is the first in-person experience since the COVID pandemic, and that it is brought back after four years.
