Many countries are in the early stages of conceptualizing
a strategy for SDG implementation. Therefore, the
importance of national mainstreaming of the SDGs is
critical to have national ownership of the 2030 Agenda.
As Governments undertake to mainstream the SDGs in
their national development plans, it is important to ensure
that national, subnational and subregional indicators,
as well as data collection and reporting arrangements
are designed and implemented in a way that will enable
globally comparable and standardized statistics to be
compiled by the National Statistical Systems (NSS) of
Caribbean countries. For example, the crucial role of
national institutional infrastructure to drive the SDGs must
be emphasized. In addition, the importance of quality,
timely and disaggregated data must be recognized and
the capacity needed to collect, analyse and report data and
statistics must be put in place.
