Leadership skills

The growing demand for data to implement national development plans, achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and address global crises calls on national statistical offices (NSOs) to increase data production, develop and coordinate national statistical systems (NSSs) and engage with the larger data ecosystem. Enhancing the leadership skills of leaders of NSOs through targeted training is essential to help them to respond to emerging data needs, enhance institutional positioning, and build public trust.

PARIS21, with the support of various partners, has been providing leadership training to Director Generals from NSOs worldwide to empower them with the skills needed to excel in their roles and deliver their National Strategies for the Development of Statistics (NSDS).
