Location Royal Statistical Society, 12 Errol Street, London EC1Y 8LX

The International Development Section of the Royal Statistical Society has teamed up with PARIS21 – Partnership in Statistics for the 21st Century – to organise an event about developing the capacity of statistical systems around the world. 
Reliable regular data are key to our understanding of societies and economies, and the demands for such data are ever-increasing. But not all statistical offices and statistical systems are able to meet that demand. PARIS21, who have been working in statistical capacity development for nearly 20 years, have recently synthesised their experience into a set of guiding principles for capacity development which will be presented and discussed at the meeting. These will be of interest not just to statisticians but to all those who are working with governance and results management.
Speakers include:
  • Johannes Jutting, Manager of PARIS21
  • Claire Melamed, Executive Director of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data
  • Neil Jackson, Chief Statistician, UK Department for International Development
  • Michael Woolcock, Lead Social Scientist, World Bank Development Data Group and lecturer in public policy at Harvard
