Significant achievements have been made by GPSDD since its inception, culminating in high level support for the need for good data to measure SDGs, with many nation states making statements at the UN General Assembly which concluded just two days before the board meeting. But countries saying the right things (i.e. stating their commitments to ensuring producing good data to measure progress towards SDGs) is very different to them actually doing the right things. The GPSDD knows this, and has been experimenting by helping a few countries create Data Roadmaps – the pathway to get from here/today, to where the country needs to be. But GSPDD is a small organisation. So scaling up this activity is a challenge.
