Meeting of the Expert Group on National Quality Assurance Frameworks
29-10-2018 – 01-11-2018 New York
The meeting will discuss the draft Manual of the United Nations National Quality Assurance Framework (UN-NQAF) which is being developed by the Expert Group based on decision 48/106 of the United Nations Statistical Commission in March 2017. The Commission requested the Expert Group to address implementation issues, among them assuring the quality of SDG indicator data and data from new sources and new data providers. The draft chapters have been developed in virtual meetings and two rounds of formal consultations over the last year. This meeting will review the draft chapters in detail with the aim to resolve remaining issues and to make the draft Manual ready for the worldwide consultation among all countries before its finalization and submission to the 50th session of the Statistical Commission in March 2019.
