Financing the Data Revolution: What Does it Take and Where Are we at?

20/09/2016, New York, USA

The objective of this limited-capacity, invitation-only event is to review the financing of national statistical systems in developing countries, and the data revolution more generally, and to propose concrete actions to increase and sustain funding for measuring the SDGs. The event is co-hosted by the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (Partnership) as well as the Partnership in Statistics for Development in the 21st Century (PARIS21). Speakers include Partnership Coordinator Sanjeev Khagram and Martine Durand, OECD’s Director of Statistics and Chief Statistician, who will discuss insights gleaned from PARIS21’s Partner Report on Support to Statistics (PRESS) as well as the Partnership’s first The State of Development Data Funding report.
