Paper 12:  Good Practices for Sustained Financing of National Statistics

Moizza Binat Sarwar, Emma Samman and Romilly Greenhill 

This study takes a first step towards mapping out the building blocks of a robust statistical system by trying to better understand the circular relationship between the availability of finance and the development of statistical systems, and to identify good practices in raising financial support for statistics.


Paper 13: Emerging Labour Market Data Sources towards Digital Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET)

Nikos Askitas, Rafik Mahjoubi, Pedro S. Martins, Koffi Zougbede

This report focuses on new data sources and ways to create, access and manage labour market data. The study is a response to the realisation that Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in developing countries has not worked as desired and that a new form of digital TVET might be needed.
