PARIS21, in partnership with the UN Statistical Institute for Asia and the Pacific (SIAP), co-organised and facilitated the 5th Regional Training Course on NSDS-ADAPT in Chiba, Japan on 6-9 November 2018.

The training was attended by senior officials of NSOs and national planning agencies from 10 countries in the Asia-Pacific region (i.e., Fiji, Kazakhstan, Lao PDR, Maldives, Myanmar, Samoa, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Thailand, and Vietnam). The training aimed to provide an overview of the NSDS framework and the processes involved in strategic planning for statistical development. It also provided hands-on training on the Advanced Data Planning Tool (ADAPT) to better understand the key functionalities of the tool and its usefulness in mapping data gaps, statistical planning, and national development planning.
