From 10 to 11 March 2011, in Johannesburg, South Africa, the Southern African Development Community and PARIS21 co-organised a regional workshop on Implementing National Strategies for the Development of Statistics (NSDS) and Formulating Regional Strategies for the Development of Statistics (RSDS). (This event was originally scheduled to take place from 7 to 9 March in Blantyre, Malawi but had to be moved for logistical reasons.)

The aims were broadly to assist the development of statistics in the SADC region through better informed implementation of NSDSs. It was the first workshop for SADC countries devoted to NSDS implementation since a PARIS21 workshop held in Livingstone, Zambia in May 2005, where the emphasis was on design rather than implementation of NSDSs.
