Government of Afghanistan Approves 2016-2020 NSDS


6 September 2016

Afghanistan is among the developing countries which is determined to move forward with social and economic development. Despite slow progress, the government is taking significant steps in improving processes for designing policies, plans and programmes in various sectors. One such critical area the government has recognised is the need for a strong national statistical system where data and statistics are made available to properly guide political leaders in their policy decisions and planning for development. 

Afghanistan's Central Statistics Organization has designed a National Strategy for Statistics spanning 2016-2020 in consultation with government and non-government stakeholders, International Statistical Agencies and Donors and with technical assistance of PARIS21. The National Strategy was recently approved by the Government of Afghanistan and implementation is currently underway.
