Faced with frequent budget cuts and increasing demands from policy makers for more and better quality statistics, national statistical systems have taken steps to collaborate in different ways, including at the regional level. The measurement challenges brought about by the post-2015 development agenda raise even further the need for cooperation by the countries and the development partners to eradicate inefficiencies in statistics development work, notwithstanding the cost of coordination itself.

Public information and advocacy materials

National statistical systems need to prepare themselves for the high demands arising from the post-2015 development agenda for integrated economic, social and environmental statistics, as shown by the broad range of goals and targets that are contained in the proposal of the Open Working Group (OWG) on Sustainable Development Goals. The OWG proposal also contains two targets on data and statistics, making statistics development as part of a global development agenda.

Successful implementation of the post-2015 development agenda depends on effective monitoring of progress towards goals and clear accountability for the progress being made. This will require the consolidation of a wide range of data and statistics collected by an equally wide range of organisations, disaggregated by relevant population groups and accessible to all key stakeholders. This provides opportunities for establishing and strengthening a virtuous cycle of effective demand and efficient supply of key statistics for informed decision-making and better development results.
