Since its establishment, PARIS21 works on co-ordinating the efforts between all actors within the National Statistical System (NSS). With more actors and a more complex data landscape, there is a need to strengthen existing institutional frameworks and partnerships to make them fit for that purpose, ensuring that joint efforts ultimately benefit developing countries.
PARIS21 has demonstrated that its strongest comparative advantage is in rallying, facilitating, and coordinating its partners. Its work so far on National Startegies for the Development of Statistics (NSDSs), Partner Report on Support to Statistics (PRESS) and Data Management among others gives it an advantage at the country and regional level.
Under its new strategyin particular, PARIS21 will continue to facilitate discussion on key issues affecting data and statistics, and seek agreements on needed action where appropriate, among all relevant partners, at the national, regional and international level and to strengthen the capacity of countries to monitor and measure their development progress (through its PRESS and Country Report on Support to Statistics (CRESS) reports, respectively), of the NSDS processes worldwide, as well as the BAPS indicators on the use of statistics.
