MoAF to implement the Strategic Plan for RNR Statistics

The Strategic Plan for Renewable Natural Resources Statistics (SPRNRS) has been developed in compliance to the roadmap, preceded by an In-depth Country Assessment of the National System for RNR Statistics in Bhutan (IdCA). The IdCA identified that the existing RNR statistical system is characterized by gaps in information quality, inconsistency in data, inadequate availability and accessibility to users and inadequate human and technological capacity to meet user requirements. Therefore, the purpose of this strategy plan is to provide a framework and methodology that will enhance the quality and availability of RNR statistics to guide policy analysis and informed decision making.

The implementation of SP-RNRS is expected to bring about transformational change of the current state of RNR statistics – characterized by gaps in information quality – to a system that meets the requirement of relevant users, producing statistics of good quality and coverage being managed by appropriate professionals with good statistical capacity through application of modern technological tools. The SPRNRS is approved and endorsed by the RNR-GNHC in June 2018, the highest decision-making body in the MoAF.

The development of the SPRNRS is supported by phase 1 of the Global Strategy to Improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics.
