STRENGTHENING NATIONAL CAPACITIES TO BRIDGE DEVELOPMENT DATA GAPS

PARIS21 is pleased to announce Annual Meetings 2014, themed "Strengthening National Capacities to Bridge Development Data Gaps". This year’s meetings will run from 2 – 4 April, 2014 at the OECD Conference Centre, in Paris, France.

On top of updating you on our accomplishments and plans for the coming year, we will feature the official launch of the new Guidelines for National Strategies for the Development of Statistics (NSDS); an update on PARIS21's Post-2015 activities, including our newest project "Informing a Data Revolution"; and a discussion on innovations that are enabling countries to transform data into knowledge, resulting in policy action.

If you have any questions with regard to the programme or meeting logistics, please contact Katarzyna Zaremba at Katarzyna.ZAREMBA[at]oecd.org.
