Why does trusted data matter for inclusive governance? Improving data literacy and use in Vanuatu

It is safe to say that Vanuatu resembles few other countries: geographically, culturally and in terms of the challenges that the country faces in order to ensure a safe, prosperous and healthy future for its people and ecosystems. As the country faces a changing environment and disruption to lives and livelihoods, how can Ni-Vanuatu and their political representatives ensure that they are able to use data to make the right policy choices, and ensure that those who represent them are accountable? Through the PARIS21 Trust Initiative, Vanuatu’s National Statistics Organisation is addressing the gaps in the national statistical systems to build capacity to use data.
