The PARIS21 Partner Report on Support to Statistics, PARIS21’s flagship report, is the most comprehensive annual analysis of donor financial flows to data and statistics. Since 2007, the report has provided an annual analysis of trends in financing for data and statistics allowing the international data and statistics community the information it needs to effectively support better statistical systems across the world.
The period of this strategy—2021-2025—is a pivotal one. During these five years, the world will experience an acceleration of the data revolution, brought about by increasing digitalisation. We will also pass the halfway point of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with significantly greater action needed to ensure that we “leave no-one behind”. We must do everything that we can to prepare countries to meet these challenges.
The 2021-2025 Theory of Change is the first pillar of the Unified Results Framework, which complements PARIS21’s 2021-2025 Strategy. The theory of change elaborates how PARIS21 will contribute to transformative and structural changes at the country, regional and global levels to make progress towards the overall impact and five outcome areas identified in the results framework, as well as the cross-cutting priority of gender equality.

In spite of growing awareness, gender data gaps persist across countries of all income levels across the globe. Data gaps put women and girls at particular risk and closing gender data gaps are a part of the global effort to build back better from the COVID-19 crisis as well as prepare for future crises.
A pesar de la creciente conciencia, las brechas de datos de género persisten en países de todos los niveles de ingresos en todo el mundo. Las brechas de datos ponen a las mujeres y las niñas en un riesgo particular y cerrar las brechas de datos de género es parte del esfuerzo global para reconstruir mejor a partir de la crisis de COVID-19, así como prepararse para futuras crisis.
Malgré une prise de conscience croissante, des lacunes dans les données de genre persistent dans les pays de tous les niveaux de revenu à travers le monde. Les lacunes en matière de données exposent les femmes et les filles à un risque particulier et la réduction des lacunes en matière de données de genre fait partie de l’effort mondial visant à mieux reconstruire après la crise du COVID-19 et à se préparer aux crises futures.
As we move into the second half of the 2030 Agenda implementation period, the world is off-track to meet the Global Goals.2 The need for transformational change to address the world’s most pressing development challenges is greater now than it has ever been. Here at the SDG Summit in 2023, we are at an inflection point. With the world coming up against multiple crises and concerning trendlines on poverty and inequality, armed conflict, human migration, global warming, and habitat loss, none of us can afford to shy away from the challenges we face.

The PARIS21 Partner Report on Support to Statistics 2022 A Wake-Up Call to Finance Better Data Close to the halfway point of the Sustainable Development Goals, a significant data gap threatens to leave the poorest and most vulnerable behind. The PARIS21 Partner Report on Support to Statistics 2022 raises the alert on shortfalls in funding to data and statistics that have grown larger in 2020 – only partly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Amidst a worsening picture for global development and a rise in complex global threats, leaders need to reaffirm their commitments to data and statistics as a core component of effective and impactful policy making.
