Technical Support

Significant inroads have been made on PARIS21’s core objective of strengthening National Statsitical Systems (NSSs), but this is a continued and evolving agenda. There is still a way to go to implement national strategies and update them to help countries seize the opportunities of the data revolution, and meet the new demands for development data, including from the Sustainable Development Goals.

PARIS21’ s neutrality has earned it the trust of developing countries, and a strong relationship with National Statitstical Offices (NSOs), giving it a strong advantage in continuing to provide guidance and develop frameworks, with a focus on improving national statistical systems, strengthening regional cooperation and improving access and use of statistics.

PARIS21 will continue to strengthen capacity in National Statistical Systems and its linkages to decision making processes while fostering and improving the production and dissemination of quality data for development through its data products.
