Statistics on International Cooperation
Statistics provide the information necessary to make decisions, document results, and present accountability. The demand for effective statistics on international cooperation requires on the one hand, an effort to shape a culture of transparency, and on the other, an effort to provide national and international actors with credible statistics.
In terms of statistics, the AGCI Action Plan is based upon three objectives. First, to integrate statistical data within the decision making process, second, to promote access to information that will benefit the national and international community, and third, to increase and improve statistical information systems.
The Action Plan also includes incorporating the requirements of our regional partners such as the OAS, MERCOSUR, CELAC, UNASUR, SEGIB, and SICA as well as our multilateral partners including the World Bank, WTO, and OECD. It also entails incorporating international agreements such as PARIS 21 and the UN MDGs in addition to data from national actors and institutions such as universities, think tanks, NGOs, and the public sector.
This plan includes three lines of action:
- Developing a statistical system that accounts and reflects the development priorities and strategy of Chilean cooperation integrated with international standards.
- Implement standards for collecting, storing, and disseminating statistics.
- Developing tools for the use of statistics in the planning, analysis, monitoring and evaluation of AGCI projects.
Using these lines of action AGCI is able to generate annual statistical reports on South-South and Trilateral Cooperation in addition to reports on training and scholarships.
