Global advocacy for smarter financing

A barrier for low- and middle-income countries to build the statistical infrastructure for sustainable development for all is the need for more resources for their national statistical systems (NSSs).

PARIS21 champions greater and smarter resource mobilisation for data and statistics to support evidence-based, inclusive sustainable development.
