Advancing the Global Statistical System- Major work areas and accomplishments
The Forum, organized by the UN Statistics Division, reflects on how the Statistical Commission has met the challenges it has faced in the past, as well as on how it will meet the challenges that lie ahead, in particular in reference to the impact of new and emerging information needs of the global environment on the global statistical system. The Forum features a high level panel composed of users and producers of statistics, who provides their views on how the global statistical system has evolved, the role of the Statistical Commission and the new challenges that the Commission has to face to move the global system forward.
