PARIS21 undertook the mid-term review of Senegal's NSDS 2014-2019 from 20-24 November, in co-ordination with INSEE and AFRISTAT. The delegation attended the launch of  Senegal's subscription to the IMF’s Special Data Dissemination Standard (SDDS), in presence of President Macky Sall. Senegal became the 4th Sub-Saharan African country to subscribe to the SDDS. Regarding the NSDS, the mission welcomed the good results in terms of ANSD statistical production, dissemination and communication but identified persistent challenges in statistical production and capacity within sector Ministries. To surmount this problem, the mission recommended the creation of key Sector Statistical Services together with a centralised management of statisticians in the country. The mission also recommended starting the elaboration of the next NSDS in 2018, to be aligned with the next round of the Plan Senegal Emergent 2019-2023.
