In partnership with United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and under the request of Libya Bureau of Statistics and Census, PARIS21 assessed the national statistical system of Libya during a consultative workshop in Tunis, Tunisia from 27 to 29 February 2016. The workshop was attended by representatives from the Central Bank of Libya; Ministry of Agriculture; Ministry of Social Affairs; Ministry of Health and the Bureau of Statistics and Census.

Following this workshop, Libya undertook a 2018-2023 National Strategy for the Development of Statistics. The first of its kind in Libya, the NSDS will transform the national statistical system into a modern, reliable and efficient statistical system that produces qualitative statistics that are fully compatible with the needs of the user. The NSDS was developed in close collaboration with stakeholders in the public and private sectors, particularly the major development institutions and the research community. The observations of all partners from ministries, agencies and interests were taken into account. PARIS21 and UNFPA assisted in preparing this strategy.

This strategy aims to increase the capacity of the Libyan Bureau of Statistics and Census and all components of the statistical system. It provides an opportunity for organised statistical work, which aims to provide the necessary data for decision making on a sound basis and contribute to the process of state building and sustainable development.
