From New York to Maputo, PARIS21 is helping to engineer a data revolution and fulfilling the mandate from the 2013 Annual Meeting to raise awareness on statistical challenges linked to the Post-2015 Development Agenda. A series of events have provided a platform to build consensus around why we need this revolution and what it might entail. Some key messages are emerging, including:
- A data revolution should be built upon past successes and address current weaknesses by bringing in all relevant actors and increasing co-ordination at the international level.
- A new partnership should be the catalyst for the expansion of more relevant and more reliable data production, as the result of better co-ordination between national and international actors and strengthened national capacities.
- Armed with more quality data, the ultimate goal of the data revolution will be to support decision makers, including politicians, business and citizens, to make informed decision for better lives.
