The 4th NSDS Regional Training Course in Asia-Pacific was organised by PARIS21 in partnership and collaboration with the UN Statistical Institute for Asia and the Pacific (SIAP) on 7-9 November 2017 in Chiba, Japan.  The training course was attended by 10 delegates from 8 countries (Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Maldives, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Timor Leste).  The course highlighted 5 new modules in response to SDG concerns, specifically subnational statistics, sectoral statistics, other data sources, open data, and the Advanced Data Planning Tool (ADAPT).  Six of the eight participating countries have on-going NSDS that will expire in 2018 and 2019, thus plans for preparing new NSDSs are underway that would incorporate these specific SDG needs.  One country, Sri Lanka which currently does not have an NSDS, has planned to prepare their first in 2018.  The objectives of the training course were to introduce the NSDS process and framework and provide guidance to countries in updating and/or developing new NSDSs, taking into consideration related SDG concerns.  The ADAPT will be a useful tool in mapping national indicator frameworks with global, regional, subnational and/or sectoral indicator frameworks and assess readiness of countries in addressing SDG data requirements.
