More accurate, coherent and timely data leads to better decision-making for countries. Since the adoption of the United Nations National Quality Assurance Frameworks Manual for Official Statistics (Manual1) in 2019, more countries have implemented their national quality assurance framework (NQAF).
The side event informed about the overall status of the NQAF implementation around the globe, introduced the Roadmap for NQAF implementation, a new tool for implementation, and presented country experiences on challenges and lesson learned during the NQAF implementation. This side event was organized by the Expert Group on National Quality Assurance Frameworks (EG-NQAF). It is linked to the Commission’s agenda item 3(m) National Quality Assurance Frameworks and will provide an opportunity for an informal discussion.
