In endorsing the Implementation Plan of the Regional Strategy to Improve Population and Social Statistics in Asia and the Pacific, the Committee on Statistics of ESCAP, at its fifth session in December 2016, also agreed to establish a Regional Steering Group (RSG) to oversee the implementation of the Regional Strategy to achieve its vision, “the countries of Asia and the Pacific have the capacity to produce, disseminate, and use the core set of population and social statistics by 2030.”
The Regional Steering Group on Population and Social Statistics (RSG-PSS) was established in 2017, comprising member countries (NSOs), development partners and ESCAP Statistics Division as the secretariat.
