Session vi capacity building in gender statistics 1 introductory remarks and orientation

  • InWEnt - Capacity Building International, Germany

  • A non-profit organisation with world-wide operations dedicated to human resource development, advanced training and dialogue

  • Founded 2002 through merger of Carl Duisberg Society (CDG) e.V. and German Foundation for international Development (DSE)

  • InWEnt implements BMZ (Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development) projects, which accounts for roughly 60 % of the overall project spending.

  • InWEnt’s business includes commissions from the EU, the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ), the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the German Financial Cooperation (KfW) group of banks, many foundations, UN organizations, the World Bank and international development banks.

  • Business volume about 140 Mio. Euro and approx. 55.000 participants yearly

  • The InWEnt Centre for Economic, Environmental and Social Statistics (the ex-Munich Centre)

    • An important goal: to build statistical capacities in partner countries

    • Advanced training courses do not only focus generation of data but also the political, social and economic backgrounds and concepts for which quality information is needed

    • Topics selected from the field of economic, environmental and social statistics but also from innovative fields such as concepts to quantify good governance, democratisation and human rights

  • The InWEnt Centre for Economic, Environmental and Social Statistics (the ex-Munich Centre)

    • Annual training programmes include advanced training courses, in classroom format, online and blended learning formats, conferences in Germany and abroad. Also customised courses on request

    • InWent collaborates with a large network of selected experts from around the world ensuring practice-oriented, state-of-the-art knowledge transfer

  • Statistical Capacity Building (SCB)

    • Aims at making available more reliable and up-to date data for better measuring, monitoring and managing development results – e,g. support monitoring MDGs, Poverty Reduction Strategies, etc.

    • Concerns the development of public statistical systems as a whole. HR development in all sorts of training is an intergal part of statistical capacity building initiatives

  • Statistical Capacity Building (SCB)

    • NSDS and similar consitute the national framework for SCB. Training is henceforth an integral part of the managment of the NSDS by te NSS. Close collaboration between training providers and training users is essential.

    • Evidently statistical training does not only focus producers of official statistics but also users and, at another level, also private market operators

  • Statistical Training in Africa

  • Applied statistics training is provided in Africa at several levels by several types of institutions:

    • Initial Training: Specialised Statistical Training Centres (some of them university institutes such as ISAE Makere University) – most regional but some national (linked to the NSI) sometimes in scientific collaboration with regional ones

    • In-house training or on-the-job training: organised in most of African NSIs in a more or less systematic or structured, permanent or ad-hoc way

    • Advanced short term training programmes in different formats developed and provided by international or bi-lateral cooperation partners but also African STCs.

  • Gender statistics training for African Statistical Systems (1)

  • No major evolution of Gender Statistics since 1995

    • The Global Forum on Gender Statistics in Rome 12/2007 stated that although efforts made since Beijing 1995 gender mainstreaming of official statistics has not made the expected evolution all over the world. The Global Forum intended to relaunch the process of developing gender statistics

    • In Africa, bar a few exceptions, no major developments made. The Global Forum considered that it might have been a mistake to only focus gender focal points and not more largely statistical systems as a whole and in their institutional and political environment.

  • Gender statistics training for African Statistical Systems (2)

  • Quite a number of GS training provided but no focus on Africa

    • A sub-group on gender statistics training was created within the IAEG GS (in Rome) and entrusted with an overview of existing training materials, initiatives and actors to ensure not reinventing the wheel in terms of GS training.

    • Quite a number of GS training seems to be done at various levels by various institutions in various geographical areas but difficult to put hand on systematic information – no report by subgroup yet available – however Africa does not seem to have been in the focus of those initiatives over the past years

  • Gender statistics training for African Statistical Systems (3)

  • An AfDB/InWEnt approach to GS training for African statistical systems

    • On that basis AfDB and InWEnt declared their common willingness in launching an initiative for GS training in Africa – framework statistical capacity building programmes and NSDS.

    • In the respect of the 2005 Paris Declaration on aid effectiveness, the Accra Action Agenda (10/2008) and nonetheless the recommendations of the Berlin statement on effectiveness of international Development Training (6/2008) both partners intend to collaborate with all international, regional and national actors concerned incl. STCs.

  • Gender statistics training for African Statistical Systems (4)

  • The intention of this session

    • The objective of this session is to open the dialogue between the users and the providers of statistical training. Mainstreaming GS throughout the whole statistical system is an issue of the NSIs within its NSDS and so is training whether it concerns GS or any other statistical training issue

    • This session is to show that all levels of statistics training is concerned if one wants to strenghten effectively the gender mainstreaming process within the statistical systems and that collaboration and coordination at all levels is highly needed


Session vi capacity building in gender statistics 1 introductory remarks and orientation

  • Gender statistics training for African Statistical Systems (5)

  • Examples of GS training and mainstreaming training curricula

    • ENSEA Abidjan – on engendering initial training curricula - a first attempt with UNIFEM

    • CSO India – on developing and providing in-house training in a highly decentralised statistical system – one example

    • UNECE/WBI - to present its interesting approach and innovative materials for gender statistics training mainly provided in Eastern European and Central Asian Countries

    • InWEnt – on its planning to develop and provide GS courses for Africa and to assist the development of GS in Africa
