The Cape Town Global Action Plan for Sustainable Development Data acknowledges the urgent need for National statistical systems (NSS) to adapt and develop to meet the widening, increasing and evolving requirements of data to monitor the progress towards goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as well as provide adequate data for data users, especially decision-makers. The UN Development Account 10th tranche programme on Statistics and Data (UNDA10) addresses these challenges and brings together the collective efforts of ten implementing entities into a comprehensive programme aiming at strengthening national statistical systems to measure, monitor and report on the sustainable development goals.
