PARIS21 supported Peru's National Statistical System workshop for the development of their NSDS. The workshop was held on Sept. 28 and included over 240 representatives from over 60 institutions. The event was also co-funded by UNFPA and the World Bank. The session opened with statements from the Director General of the INEI and the President of the National Planning Commission as well as PARIS21 and UNFPA.

The event was organised around sectoral tables and gathered together users and producers within the framework of an exhaustive indicator inventory for each sector. The tables used show data sources for the indicators (current and planned) and also outline new potential sources of data. The NSDS will be focused mainly on the quality and exhaustivity of production.

A strong recurring theme in the workshop was the increasing importance of using administrative data as source data. While Peru actively uses administrative data, greater quality control and methodological definitions will be required in the future.

PARIS21 continues its commitment to Latin American statistics through a partnership with the Andean Community - CAN (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru). The CAN has expressed interest in using the ADAPT as a regional monitoring tool for the countries' NSDSs.

The ADAPT was demonstrated to INEI planners and strong interest was shown. It is likely that an ADAPT pilot programme will be defined for the region in 2018.
