How is the ADAPT tool helping to modernise Paraguay’s data systems?

Strategy and Planning
Achieving and monitoring progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals requires more data than ever before. In this respect, 2020 and 2021 were milestone years for statistics in Paraguay. With a new statistics law, the inauguration of the new National Statistics Institute, the creation of a modern statistical system and a National Strategy for the Development of Statistics that includes the planning of gender statistics, the country is looking to build a statistical system that can provide the data that the country needs for sound policy making. From the outset, PARIS21’s ADAPT tool has been integrated into this system. One year on, what are the benefits of these efforts?
