    • Public budget stress

    • Sustained stress on household budgets (Food/CPI)

    • E.g. Egypt, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Madagascar, Mongolia, Turkey, Uganda, Zambia


Unicef s contribution to givas indicators

UNICEF’s contribution to GIVAS – Indicators

  • Proposed indicators at three levels (global/regional/country)

  • Selection principles for the global indicators

    • Relevant for MDGs and/or UNICEF’s mission

    • Development impact of the selection of the indicator

    • Relevant for LICs and well as MICs

    • Standard qualities of social indicators

    • Could be collected also at sub-national levels

    • Both absolute numbers and rates/ratios

    • Could be benchmarked by routine stats or representative surveys

  • It is expected that GIVAS will add other indicators…

  • Policy relevance, political sensitivity

  • Feedback to improve GIVAS and national/international monitoring?
