PARIS21 participated in the third and final workshop of the United Nations Statistics Division's (UNSD) Development Account project “Enhancing national statistical capacity to measure, monitor, assess and report on progress on achieving post-2015 goals and targets for sustainable development”. The workshop was held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 14-18 May 2018 and was organised by UNSD in co-operation with the Central Statistical Agency of Ethiopia (CSA) and the United Nations Economic Commission of Africa/African Center for Statistics (UNECA/ACS).

The workshop brought together indicator experts from National Statistical Offices and agencies responsible for national development planning and SDG monitoring, including project countries, twelve other regional African countries and representative from the African Development Bank and African Union Commission.

PARIS21 presented its Advanced Data Planning Tool (ADAPT) as an instrument to support and conduct the statistical planning process. UNSD expressed its commitment to use this tool in the capacity gap assessment of countries participating in its UNSD-DFID project. Additionally, UNSD’s assessment methodology has been integrated into ADAPT, making it easier for countries to report on UN-indicators.w
