Joint Organisations Data Initiative (JODI) Energy Data Transparency Workshop for Africa will be held on 06-09 May 2019 in Cape Town South Africa. The aim of this four-day workshop is to provide energy experts and statisticians in Africa comprehensive picture of energy data compilation activities necessary to ensure sustainable energy for all. Technical linkage between annual and monthly data collections should be explained alongside differences in benefit and focuses of these two energy data collection activities from policy making standing point. With such objective in mind, the four-day workshop will feature the JODI (Oil and Gas) monthly data collection, annual energy statistics and balances compilation as well as principles of energy efficiency indicators. We hope that improving energy data transparency in Africa will provide improved understanding to enable better policy and investment decision making. In addition, this JODI Energy Statistics Training Workshop will take place at the same time as the 4th IEF-OFID Symposium of Energy Poverty that we hold at the same venue, thus linking the need of energy data to decision making and alleviating energy poverty from Africa. »

14th International JODI Conference
The 14th JODI Conference was held in Cairo on 20-21 October 2019. The Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum hosted the event under auspicious of HE Tarek El-Molla, Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources of Egypt.
Energy producing, and consuming countries have successfully fostered the Joint Organisations Data Initiative (JODI) throughout nearly two decades of mutual dedicated and sustained cooperation by all stakeholders. IEF Ministers at their latest IEF16 Ministerial Meeting in India (April 2018) stressed their ongoing interest in improving global energy market transparency and their support for a strengthened JODI. This biennial JODI Conference played a key role in the JODI development cycle which aims to continually advance the global energy data transparency agenda in support of stable energy markets as advocated by IEF Ministers, G20 leaders, and other stakeholders.
This 14th International JODI Conference (IJC14) convened actors contributing to enhanced energy data transparency at various stages of the JODI data supply chain, including industry representatives, experts from national administrations, the JODI Partners themselves (APEC, Eurostat, GECF, IEA, IEF, OLADE, OPEC, UNSD), JODI Associates (AFREC, OAPEC) and other JODI data users from around the world. Sustained and enhanced interaction among this diverse and growing group has been vital to the ongoing success of the Initiative.
The Agenda discussion items for IJC14 were:
• JODI Success Stories and Improvement Opportunities
• Redefining Value of the Energy Data Transparency Initiative
• Benefits of JODI Cooperation Mechanism Across Energy Data Supply Chain
• Make JODI Capacity Building Efforts Truly Beneficial for All
• Strategies for Enhanced Visibility of Energy Data Transparency and its Benefits
• Maximise Benefits of Energy Data Transparency – Beyond Current JODI Framework
• JODI Actions toward 2025
IJC14 offered a rare opportunity for a cross-section of data providers and users from around the globe to meet and share their experiences. The JODI Partners have envisaged that discussions and exchange of ideas during the conference would help to strengthen existing JODI activities, and would also serve as a catalyst to enhance the role of JODI beyond its current framework.
JODI represents more than a database, it is a commitment to on-going dialogue and actions among all stakeholders. Coordinated efforts on this scale require constant reinforcement and adaptation.
