We support national statistical systems to meet the data needs of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, through
- methodological guidance
- modernization of statistics
- capacity development.
By bringing together experts from across the statistical community, we promote efficiencies and innovative ways to tackle persistent and emerging challenges in official statistics.
Our work on statistics has lasting impact and global reach.
Key areas of work
- Data is crucial for understanding the extent of the effects and impacts of climate change and for shaping our efforts to tackle it and adapt to it. Our COP28 side event on Enabling climate action through data, transparency and finance emphasized the need for high-quality statistics and data to support reporting, policymaking and public awareness.
- The landscape of information available to the public and policymakers has changed drastically in recent years. Our work on data stewardship outlines how the producers of official statistics can navigate these changes, playing a leading role in ensuring the ethical and responsible creation, collection, management, use and reuse of data so that they are used for public good and benefit the full community of data users.
