The UN Secretary General’s Independent Expert Advisory Group (IEAG) speaks of the data revolution as an “explosion” in the volume and production of data matched by a “growing demand for data from all parts of society”. This expansion of the data ecosystem is disruptive as it requires a radical shift in attention to new capacities to deal with the plethora of new, unstructured data sources and demands from new actors and data users (NGOs, civil society and citizens).

Helping national data ecosystems respond to and manage this process requires a new approach to capacity - “Capacity Development 4.0” (CD4.0). The objectives of this approach go beyond the traditional production-side interventions to also include the strengthening of data use, literacy and results.

PARIS21 has worked with partners to produce multiple resources to help countries develop the statistical capacities necessary to attain national, regional and international objectives.
