Endorsement of the TFSD-report by the Conference of European Statisticians (CES)
On June 12th 2013 the report of the Task Force for Measuring Sustainable Development (TFSD) was endorsed by the Conference of European Statisticians (CES). Jan Pieter Smits and I had the privilege of sharing the post of Chair/Editor. We have been working together with the task force members on the report since 2009 so it was very gratifying to be present at the plenary session of the CES for the endorsement of the report.
