Abstract

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.
