Implementing and monitoring the SDGs will make unprecedented demands on countries to produce more and better data, particularly in capacity-constrained environments. This roundtable will be an opportunity for member states to engage with leading experts on the challenges and needs for statistical capacity building at the national and sub-national levels. This discussion will take stock of what statistical capacity building efforts are underway, and what more is needed. We will also address what works and what doesn't and what capacity is required for countries to take advantage of new opportunities, data sources and technologies for SDG implementation and monitoring.
