10 High level expert meeting to develop the Near East Regional Action Plan to Implement the Global Strategy to improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics. Cairo, Egypt 17 – 18 Sept2012 NATIONAL GOVERNANCE FRAMEWORK The Governance at national level will build as much as possible on existing coordination mechanisms and structures. National governance of the agricultural statistical system entails the establishment, where this does not exist, of a sectoral coordination mechanism that brings together the national statistics office and the ministries responsible for agriculture, forestry, and fisheries and any other institutions that collect agriculture-related data. This sectoral coordination mechanism should be part of the national statistical coordination mechanism, such as the National Statistics Council, which provides governance to the whole national statistical system.
