Official statistics are essential to policymaking and wider decision-making efforts to achieve sustainable development across Africa. The road map is a first step towards supporting African countries in better planning for and carrying out the transformation and modernization of official statistics in the face of common challenges and opportunities. In the road map, principles and priorities for transformation and modernization across a wide range of data ecosystems in modern Africa are defined and actions at the continental level to support this process are identified. Targeted actions need to be further developed and implemented to make the road map fully effective. The implementation of international standards, the harmonization of outputs and the provision of mutual support for the development of official statistics will continue to be essential. That said, each African country needs to develop its own road map on the basis of the present road map, in accordance with national circumstances and development priorities.
