Rationale
Rationale

  • Improve partner harmonisation and collaboration through information exchange

  • Promote “scaling-up” of statistical support within overall development assistance

  • Identify countries/areas requiring support

  • Define funding strategies in context of NSDS

Press 2008 data limitations
PRESS 2008Data Limitations

  • Financing levels may be overestimated

    • Difficult to identify stat components in operations with budget support or sector-wide

    • Possible double-counting for activities financed and implemented by different organizations


Press 2008 data limitations1
PRESS 2008Data Limitations

  • Financing levels may be underestimated

    • Responses rely on respondent’s knowledge of partner’s projects

    • Some partners did not report financing (info often at country level)

    • Financing for known stat activities (DHS/MICS) not reported

    • 38 partners did not respond, mainly regional and sub-regional organizations

  • Key financing results

  • Key results by statistical category


Key financing results 2006 08
Key financing results2006-08

Active commitments on statistical support: USD one billion

Caveat: aggregates activities committed in different years, that vary in duration, and whose amount may have changed over life of the activity


Key financing results 2006 081
Key financing results2006-08

  • Estimated disbursements during 2006-08: roughly USD 550 million

  • Over half of this amount to Sub-Saharan Africa


Key financing results 2006 082
Key financing results2006-08

Disbursements to these countries amounted to less than 0.1% of their GDP


Key financing results 2006 083

EC, World Bank, UK provided ¾ of total disbursements

  • Caveat: number of partners did not report financial amounts nor support given at country level (e.g., UN agencies)

Key messages


Press 2008 key messages
PRESS 2008 Statistical Capacity BuildingKey Messages

  • Financial support to statistics is relatively small – < 5 cents for every $100 of bilateral grants in 2006

  • Statistical support is concentrated in few countries – 15 countries receive ½ of estimated disbursements

  • Main focus of support is on institutional development and large activities – population censuses and household surveys


Press 2008 key messages1
PRESS 2008 Statistical Capacity BuildingKey Messages

  • Partner collaboration in statistical development needs to be strengthened – collaboration at country level could serve as examples

  • More in-depth studies of PRESS results are necessary – e.g., closer review of support (or lack of support) to population censuses in relation to countries’ funding needs; or comparison of support to NSDS in relation to countries’ financing needs


Press future improved collaboration
PRESS – FUTURE Statistical Capacity BuildingImproved collaboration

At HQ Level

  • Partners improve own reporting mechanisms on statistical development

  • Each partner prepares own report on statistical support, based on PRESS findings

  • Feedback to CRS on PRESS findings


Press future improved collaboration1
PRESS – FUTURE Statistical Capacity BuildingImproved collaboration

At country level

  • PARIS21 Secretariat assists national statistical offices in monitoring partner support, in framework of financing strategy for NSDS implementation

  • Reports by partners’ country offices

PRESS – FUTURE Statistical Capacity BuildingImproved collaboration

Last, but not least:

DISSEMINATION of PRESS

From partner HQ to its country offices (to appropriate staff, not only heads)

PRESS leaflet under preparation


Press future
PRESS – Future Statistical Capacity Building

  • Management: streamline PRESS into work program of PARIS21 Secretariat (Guide for reporting rounds being prepared)

  • Periodicity: annual

  • Output: annual report, with thematic focus

  • PRESS Quality Advisory Group: provide guidance on future rounds
