The Partnership on Measuring ICT for development, a multi-stakeholder initiative launched in 2004, is the direct response to the request made by the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) to produce official statistics to monitor the information society. The Partnership aims to improve the availability and quality of internationally comparable ICT statistics and provides a framework for the coordination of activities carried out by international and regional organizations involved in ICT measurement. The session will highlight activities of Partners, including future plans to improve the quality and availability of data needed for monitoring the achievement of international goals and targets, such as those of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the implementation of WSIS action lines, and the assessment of the Global Digital Compact. The session will also discuss whether the current core list of ICT indicators defined by the Partnership and endorsed by the UN Statistical Commission in 2022, and their methodologies to collect the indicators, are sufficient to answer current and future policy making needs. The session will also address capacity building needs of countries and other challenges faced to produce official ICT statistics.
