From 21 to 25 March 2016, PARIS21 reviewed the NSDS 2011-2015 of Gabon, jointly with AFRISTAT, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, and the World Bank.

The mission welcomed the recent adoption of a new statistical law and the increased interest by the Gabonese government and its partners in statistical development and co-ordination. The joint team welcomed the creation of a thematic group on statistics as recommended in the recent AFRISTAT/PARIS21 regional workshop on co-ordination, financing and national statistical systems. In particular, the mission recommended the following actions:

  • quickly operationalise the National Statistical Office and the National Statistical Council
  • reinforce statistical co-ordination and communication
  • develop a new NSDS in line with the national priorities and the SDGs as soon as the new institutions are in place
