The PARIS21 Partner Report on Support to Statistics 2023 provides a picture of how the landscape of funding to data and statistics has shifted in recent years. As the data and statistics community recovers from three years of heavy disruption to its activities and unprecedented decreases in funding, this year’s report indicates a brighter horizon, with funding levels increasing. However, underneath an overall increase, funding for data and statistics has changed significantly. This year’s report seeks to understand how sources and modalities are shifting, as well as the implications for countries and the international community as they amplify efforts to achieve development goals.
The 2023 main findings from the report include:
- Funding for data and statistics has increased to USD 799 million after a challenging 2020.
- Multilateral channels have become the main source of funding to data and statistics for the first time.
- Gender data financing has stagnated at a low level, but there are signs of successful gender data mainstreaming throughout development projects
