From 5-7 November 2019, the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data and Cepei partnered with the Inter-American Development Bank and the Government of Mexico’s National Institute of Statistics and Geography to host a peer knowledge exchange in Mexico City, focusing on administrative records. This is a key area of the data ecosystem that partner countries in Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) had identified for strengthening. The peer exchange brought together country, regional, and international partners to share experiences, identify common challenges, and create partnerships on administrative data.

This report outlines the key areas that formed the discussions over the two-and-a-half-day peer exchange and presents learnings and next steps to further the discussion on strengthening administrative data.
