Sharjah: After eight months of launching its data and information sharing platform, ‘Tabadol’ (exchange) to enhance communication and statistical gathering systems in the emirate, the Sharjah Department of Statistics and Community Development (DSCD) has recently announced the successful completion of the project’s preparatory phase.

The initiative was rolled out in collaboration with six local government departments to design an intelligent digitised tool that will support the collection and seamless exchange of administrative data – all fed into this unified statistical system accessible to every state directorate and government entity in the emirate.

The next step for DSCD is to prepare for phase two of Tabadol, which will entail software programming, which will enable Tabadol to assume a robust structure to support sustainable data exchange.

Tabadol will also guide state entities to adopt best international practices in data exchange and protection, and function as a constantly updated reference of indicators and statistics about the emirate.

Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulla Al Thani, Chairman of DSCD, said: “Our statistical projects are always ambitious and are developed by adopting latest statistical systems and solutions that reflect the highest international standards. Tabadol was also launched with a similar aim in May. Once complete, this pioneering project will further Sharjah’s goal of sustainable community development by offering state departments a unified and updated database,

characterised by precision and transparency. This will be a big step ahead in the direction of furnishing decision makers with accurate and substantial references.”

“Today, the development of any community is measured by the competence and efficiency of its official statistical systems, and the availability of recent and accurate economic, social, demographic, environmental and cultural data. In order for that to be achieved, the state date should meet five key criteria; it has to have a unified standard terminology, has to be precise, integrated, available at the right time and cost,” Al Thani added.

“An array of other objectives like vitalising administrative register, coordinating statistical action, elevating the efficiency of statistical capabilities among Sharjah’s state entities, and the provision of a solid platform to implement the census 2020 based on administrative records will be additional services offered by the Tabadol system.”

“After the success of Tabadol’s preparatory phase, we look forward to its implementation. The success of the project requires dedicated efforts and collaboration between our partners, and we are confident that we will succeed in furthering the development and service objectives we have in Sharjah,” Al Thani underscored.

The preparatory phase of Tabadol featured the participation of the Directorate of Town Planning and Survey, Sharjah Economic Development Department, Sharjah Real Estate Registration Department, Sharjah Urban Planning Department, Sharjah Municipality, Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority.
