PARIS21 has developed the Strategic Operations Guide for National Statistical Offices During the COVID-19 Crisis to assist national statistical offices during the lockdown and contingency measures of the COVID-19 pandemic.

National statistical systems in least-developed countries and fragile contexts have very limited institutional and technical capacities to sustain basic statistical operations in this crisis. Under these constraints, key strategic and long-term undertakings, like the development of a National Strategy for Development of Statistics (NSDS) or a statistics law, may suffer from considerable delays or even cancellations. In order to mitigate these disruptions, PARIS21 is proposing this guide as one of its multiple tools to support partner countries. This guide provides a set of recommendations and practical solutions for NSOs to continue strategic operations and long-term planning activities through crisis mitigation and management
