Responding to demands to monitor goals beyond 2015

UN DESA’s Statistics Division and the Statistical Office of the European Communities are organizing the Global Conference on a Transformative Agenda for Official Statistics on 15-16 January, seeking to formulate an adequate response to the increased demand for detailed and timely data to monitor progress on the goals and targets of the post-2015 development agenda.

These goals and targets are universal in the sense that they concern all United Nations Member States, but they are specific at the same time in the way they are formulated at sub-national, national and regional levels. These new demands require a more efficiently functioning national statistical system.

This Conference is organized as a High-Level Forum of official statisticians with the purpose to seek a broad consensus on the strategic agenda for statistics for the consideration of the 46th Session of the Statistical Commission in March 2015.
