Despite the difficult circumstances, national statistical offices (NSOs) are adapting and innovating to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. PARIS21 is working with NSOs in Paraguay, the Gambia, Maldives and Palestine to help them tell their stories about how they have overcome challenges wrought by the pandemic.

The videos illustrate how NSOs have been affected by the crisis, in both substantive and operational terms, and how they have innovated to respond to the crisis and rising data demands from society and policy-makers.

The project showcases the human angle of the critical statistics behind national COVID-19 response and mitigation efforts. To this end, staff and government representatives on the ground share their experiences and lessons learned.

More videos are forthcoming and will be published on this web page and our Youtube channel: https://youtu.be/9ibOrKBGkfI
