In the wake of different institutional and organizational innovations, Somalia is reviewing its 1970 Statistics Law with support from PARIS21.

The new law seeks to modernize statistics in the country taking into account changes in statistical operations at national and global level. As part of a consultative process, a drafting team convened in Nairobi, Kenya from 25-26 January to review the report and incorporate comments from stakeholders.

The team included members from the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Interior and Federal Affairs, the Central Bank of Somalia and PARIS21.
