World Bank Support



  • Monitoring systems / Core Welfare Indicators Questionnaire (CWIQ)

  • Readiness Assessment


  • Multi-donor trust fund set up in 1999

  • Closely coordinated with PARIS21

  • Goal is to help reduce poverty by strengthening the evidence-base for decision making at all levels

  • Shared vision with PARIS21 - to develop effective and efficient national statistical systems and to promote a culture of evidence-based decision-making

Focus of activities
Focus of Activities

  • Main objective is to strengthen national statistical systems

  • But also allows for regional and global actions where these are justified

  • Small grants, maximum of $400,000 with a maximum implementation period of three years

Tfscb funded activities can be
TFSCB funded activities can be

  • Country-specific

    • NSDS

    • Support for PRSP monitoring

    • Improvement in macro/or sectoral statistics;

    • Improvement of statistical infrastructure

    • Training

  • Regional

    • Workshops, seminars etc, regional coordination.

  • Global

    • Research, PARIS21 initiatives, etc

TFSCB Application Process
















Grant Agreement

Project implementation
Project Implementation

  • Preferred model is for country implementation

  • Statistical agencies gain experience in project management and implementation

  • Bank implementation is allowed, but must be justified

  • For some projects, spilt implementation has worked well

Some outcomes
Some Outcomes

  • Leverage in projects: donor funds have been matched by other resources – including scarce resources from recipients

  • Follow-on investments: TFSCB has stimulated larger investment projects (e.g. Kenya, Burkina Faso, Nigeria)

  • Leadership: countries are often prepared to fund activities themselves, but look to PARIS21 and TFSCB for technical guidance

Some lessons
Some Lessons

  • Linkage of the Trust Fund with a strong global partnership is vital

  • With small grants, need to focus on those projects which leverage further investments

  • Need flexibility to respond to priority needs

  • Processes need to be streamlined but must still be rigorous

  • Need for a good advocacy strategy


  • National statistical systems under pressure

    • Under-investment and a vicious cycle of poor performance and inadequate resources

  • Need to focus on both demand and supply

  • Need for a long-term approach

  • But focus on results and outputs

How will statcap work
How will STATCAP work?

  • A new WB lending instrument for statistical capacity building

    • System wide or focused on particular areas

  • An Adaptable Program Loan (APL), based on a sector wide approach

    • National projects will be phases of the APL

    • But projects may have several stages

  • Designed to be a simple, user-friendly lending facility

How will statcap work1
How will STATCAP work?

  • Based on a Project Appraisal Document (PAD).

  • PAD will be based on a Statistical Master Plan (SMP) for the country

  • The SMP will cover the entire national statistical system, even if the project is to finance SCB in only one area

Statistical master plan
Statistical Master Plan

  • Based on national strategies for statistical development

    • Identify strengths and weaknesses,

    • Propose an action plan

  • Includes

    • Statistical policy and the regulatory framework, management and organization

    • Statistical infrastructure

    • Statistical operations and procedures

    • Physical infrastructure and equipment.

What will statcap finance
What will StatCap finance?

  • Improving statistical policy and regulatory framework

  • Development of statistical infrastructure

  • Upgrading and developing statistical operations and procedures

  • Human resource development

  • Investment in physical infrastructure and equipment

Assessing progress
Assessing progress

  • NSDS will set strategic objectives

  • Each stage of country project will have specific goals and targets

  • Make use of new assessment tools:

    • GDDS, DQAF and statistical capacity building indicators

  • Product Development

    • National ‘light’ monitoring survey

    • Very large samples

    • Community of practice

Monitoring systems1
Monitoring systems

  • Lessons learnt

    • Institutional arrangements are the key but no blueprint

    • System should be simple & flexible

    • Build on existing processes

    • Ultimate goal is to feed back into policy making

      M & E Action Plans

      for National Strategies

Readiness assessment
Readiness Assessment

  • To set the context for the development of M&E Action Plans for National Strategies

    • Incentives & Demands

    • Roles & responsibilities

    • Capacity building requirements
