The international cooperation continued to be affected by the pandemic in 2021. Although online cooperation is now the modus operandi for many, and our skills and experience with cooperating on digital platforms has improved significantly since March 2020, the pandemic continued to cause challenges and dominate our lives and work in 2021.
Annual Report 2021. International development cooperation in Statistics Norway
The main purpose of Statistics Norway’s international develop¬ment cooperation is to contribute to the development of strong National Statistical Systems and an increase in the production of high-quality official statistics in partner countries. We believe that in the long run, this will provide the foundation for evidence-based decision making, public transparency and good governance. According to Statistics Norway’s strategy “Official statistics are the nation’s shared factual basis. This is crucial for a well-functioning democracy, and the statistics are thus a public good that everyone should have equal access to.” We believe this holds true both for our national and international work.
