REFERENCE REGIONAL STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK FOR STATISTICAL CAPACITY BUILDING IN AFRICA

(RRSF)

IMPLEMENTATION, MONITORING, REPORTING AND EVAUATION

BY

PROF. BEN KIREGYERA

9 FEBRUARY 2006

i implementation
I. IMPLEMENTATION

A: Importance of Implementation

  • Aims to:
      • deliver the results,
      • achieve purpose
      • contribute effectively to the overall framework goals
  • Importance: Kaplan and Norton (1996): “the ability to execute a strategy is more important than the quality of the strategy itself”
  • Lessons learnt from inadequate implementation of the Addis Ababa Plan of Action
  • Risk factors identified and mitigating measures provided

B: Implementation Framework

  • Implementing, monitoring and reporting to be supported by structures of regional organizations structures and ongoing statistical programmes
  • ECA structures include a Statistics Team, ABSA, CODI, FASDEV, Council of Ministers
slide3
ADB infrastructure includes a Statistics Division, ICP-Africa (established relationships between ADB/sub-regional organizations/regional training centres/regional member countries), Board of Governors
  • AU structures include NEPAD, Council of Ministers and Summit of Heads of State and Governments

C: Roles for key stakeholders defined

  • Creation of framework awareness at all levels (national, sub-national, regional & international)
  • Need for an extensive & consistent communication program (ECA/ADB/ PARIS21)
  • Stakeholders to play following roles:
slide4
Countries
      • Prime beneficiaries - primary responsibility for framework implementation
      • Directors of NSOs prime mover; oversee awareness creation & framework implementation
      • Each country to designate a Coordinator
        • publicize & popularize framework among key stakeholders
        • design national framework awareness program
        • periodically report on progress
        • may also be coordinator of the NSDS (synergy)
      • Each country to design or update its National Strategy for the

Development of Statistics (NSDS)

      • Director of NSO to initiate NSDS and secure support for it.
slide5
Sub-regional level
      • Statistics Units to designate coordinator
      • creating awareness at this level (Councils of Ministers, meetings of

Directors of NSOs, workshops, etc)

      • provide back up to country coordinators in creating awareness
      • coordinate with Regional Coordinator
      • periodic reporting
      • need for strengthening Statistics Units
  • Regional organizations
      • ECA/ADB/AU
        • to create strategy awareness regionally and internationally
        • create high level awareness/commitment & support Sub-

regional/Country Coordinators

      • ECA & ADB to:
        • play leading roles in coordinating implementing, monitoring &

reporting

        • agree on appropriate coordination mechanism taking into

account following tasks:

slide6
Tasks to be performed:
    • establishing a coordination team (Regional Coordinator,

professionals, consultants, etc.)

    • initiating & working with development partners (e.g. PARIS21) to

develop promotional materials & tools

    • mobilizing through own structures resources needed to implement

the framework

    • using own technical assistance activities in countries & sub-regional

organizations to further assistance to relevant implementing agencies

    • liaising with country & sub-regional coordinators on a regular basis

to assist them on implementation matters

    • provide to countries & sub-regional organizations technical

assistance on a need basis

    • undertake supervision missions to countries and sub-regional

organizations & prepare supervision and progress reports

    • working out reporting formats and monitoring implementation
slide7
liaising with sub-regional coordinators to receive monitoring

information on their own activities & their support to countries

  • reporting on progress on framework implementation for

discussion at different levels

  • establishing a Web page on which to post the latest information

about framework implementation

slide8
Donors & International Organizations

- greater role in supporting statistical capacity building

        • developing methodologies & frameworks
        • organizing working groups to review methodologies/
        • frameworks
        • funding statistical programs & projects

- role enhanced if:

        • appreciate statistics as a sector to be singled out for support
        • advocate for statistics at every level
        • include statistical capacity building in donor supported

projects and programmes

        • intervention of donors is better coordinated at national, sub-

regional and regional level

D: Cost of implementation and monitoring

  • Incremental cost for framework implementation and monitoring:
        • is about US$ 75 million per year
        • underscores need for increased government funding
        • development partners will need to do more
ii monitoring
II. Monitoring
  • Objective of monitoring:
      • Ensure that framework implementation is on track
      • Assess how much is being achieved/likely to be achieved
      • Provides information needed for accountability purposes
  • Monitoring requires performance indicators
      • both quantitative and qualitative indicators to be used
      • indicators selected (see Logical Framework – Annex)
        • system-related indicators
        • agency-related indicators
        • data-related indicators
        • assistance-related indicators
  • Monitoring framework builds on:
        • PARIS21 Statistical Capacity Building Indicators (SCBI)
        • Data Quality Assessment Framework (IMF)
        • Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness
slide10
Monitoring is a continuous process to be undertaken at different levels
  • Countries will be encouraged to monitor own statistical development as part of the NSDS (NSDS mechanisms for monitoring) & in context of the RRSF
  • Sub-regional coordinators to receive & collate monitoring information
  • Overall monitoring to be done by ECA and ADB
  • PARIS21 Light Reporting Mechanism may be used to report on donors
  • Peer reviews of country NSS and statistical work of sub-regional organizations
iii reporting
III. Reporting
  • Monitoring ineffective unless results reported and necessary action taken
  • Annual Report
      • country reports, sub-regional reports
      • ECA & ADB consolidate report to produce Annual Report
      • Light Reporting Mechanism by PARIS21 to be used to report

on donor activities

      • report to be distributed to members of ABSA & FASDEV
  • Bi-annual review report
      • Based on reviews taken in 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013 by an

independent institution/agency

      • report to identify successes, failures & constraints
      • recommend actions for next two years
      • report to be presented to CODI, FASDEV, ECA Conference

of Ministers & ADB Board of Governors

slide12
Mid-decade review report
      • mid-decade review 2010 by an independent

institution/agency

      • determine whether framework still relevant
      • recommend actions for next 5 years
      • report presented to CODI, FASDEV, ECA Council of

Ministers and ADB Governing Board

  • Main review of the framework

- main review of framework (2015) – target year for achieving

most of the MDGs

- independent institution/agency

- report to identify:

          • Most significant constraints
          • Most significant successful strategies
          • How well framework objectives were achieved

- report presented to CODI, FASDEV, ECA Council of

Ministers and ADB Board of Governors

slide13
IV. Conclusions
  • RRSF will support capacity building efforts
  • stakeholders must all play their respective roles
  • ECA & ADB should coordinate overall implementation,

monitoring and evaluation
