On July 17th, 2017, the Network of Southern Think Tanks (NeST) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) will host the debate “Data for SDG 17: How to measure contributions towards agenda 2030”, a side event to the “ECOSOC High-Level Segment” that happens at the same day. The BRICS Policy Center will be present through the participation of its General Supervisor, Prof. Paulo Esteves.
Several proposals for new development finance measures have been suggested by the OECD and Northern think-tanks, but these discussions have not adequately included the perspectives and voices from the developing world, where such strengthening of statistical systems is most required.
Thus, NeST and UNDP will host the debate on how to improve data for the measurement of traditional and emerging development partner’s contributions towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Agenda.
