NSDS, Data Revolution, capacity development, funding, and much more: the PARIS21 Annual Meetings 2014. This year’s meetings, themed "Strengthening National Capacities to Bridge Development Data Gaps" ran from 2 – 4 April, 2014 at the OECD Conference Centre in Paris, France.
On top of updating the board and partnership on accomplishments and plans for the coming year, the meetings featured 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.
