In-depth review on agricultural statistics, including forestry and fisheries statistics

The Bureau reviewed agricultural statistics in October 2008, noted the need for more international coordination in agricultural statistics.

Outcome of the review

In 2009, the UN Statistical Commission (UNSC) formed a Friends of Chair Working Group to draft a global strategy to improve agricultural statistics. There was no need to establish a CES Task Force.
