This paper identifies and discusses effectiveness issues in relation to development co-operation for data and statistics, taking into account the roles of different stakeholders. It applies an effectiveness lens to co-operation in the area of data and statistics, drawing on evidence from a range of sources and consultations. It examines the extent to which common principles for the effectiveness of development co-operation agreed in the Busan Partnership Agreement and commitments made at the second High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (GPEDC) in Nairobi (2016) play out in practice, and identifies three strategic issue areas, and three cross-cutting principles, that merit collective investment and efforts for greater effectiveness.

This paper contributes to the GPEDC Action Area for 2021-22 on support for data and statistical systems and capacity, with an evidence based analysis of how all relevant stakeholders can collectively strengthen data and statistical systems in partner countries in a more coherent and effective manner.
