Summary | PARIS21 Side Event: 3-years on: What have the SDGs done for National Statistical Systems?
On the sidelines of the 49th UNSC, PARIS21 held a side event which looked at how national statistical systems (NSOs) have benefited from the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) over the past three years.
Discussions highlighted the huge opportunity stemming from the SDGs, especially at a time when NSOs are subject to growing competition from new and evolving sources of information. NSOs and NSSs will need to be agile and proactive to leverage SDG opportunities, and ultimately develop new capacities and skills to build partnerships, become leaders and co-ordinate new activities.
