The community supports and builds partnerships at two levels:

  1. with international, regional or sectorial entities (such as regional development or specialised agencies) to support the standardisation through SDMX tools, data modeling, and capacity development;
  2. through a technology partners programme to develop services (hosting, integration, support) around .Stat Suite, making it accessible to a larger audience of organisations that are not core members and prefer a commercial arrangement for the support of their .Stat Suite platform.

The use of common open source tools in all of these initiatives enables to support a wider set of organisations rather than the Community directly supporting a large influx of new members from varying capacity levels.

This is also greatly helping to bring together the fragmented efforts to support capacity and platform development, and reinforce the country-level efforts to build a national data backbone.
