The National Center for Statistics and Information is officially registered to report on the 2030 agenda of sustainable development indicators in cooperation with the institutions specialized in issuing indicators and inputs in Oman. The Center monitors sustainable development indicators in collaboration with international organizations. It reviews the Sultanate's data on the UN website to ensure the validity and accuracy of such data. Besides, the Center responds to organizations in order to modify and provide national data on sustainable development indicators 2030, as well as filling out questionnaires received from international organizations; for instance, the Center has filled out a questionnaire on the assessment of the statistical capacity of indicators of sustainable development goals issued by the Food and Agriculture Organization.
Within the focus of the National Center for Statistics and Information and in cooperation with the GCC countries Statistical Center, a three-day consultation visit was planned during the period 14-16 June 2016 aiming at opening channels of cooperation and increasing knowledge about sustainable development goals and reaching a vision on how to calculate indicators, identify stakeholders and develop a capacity-building plan.
In cooperation with the Statistical, Economic and Social Research and Training Center for Islamic Countries (SESRIC), a national workshop was held within the center on the statistics of sustainable development goals 2030 during the period 6-8 March 2018.
Several projects have been implemented in cooperation with organizations, including the website project of the indicators of the Sultanate in the 2030 agenda of sustainable development goals with the support of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Project for Planning and Strengthening Administrative Data Systems in the Sultanate of Oman to support monitoring of goals and reporting on sustainable development, in collaboration with UNICEF. This project is important as it considers the availability, sustainability, classification and quality of administrative data to serve as the basis for indicators of sustainable development goals, while focusing, primarily, on child indicators. The project therefore supports the monitoring and reporting requirements for indicators of sustainable development goals.
