Presentation Transcript

  1. World Bank Support • TFSCB • STATCAP • Monitoring systems / Core Welfare Indicators Questionnaire (CWIQ) • Readiness Assessment

  2. TFSCB • 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. TFSCB Application Process Supervision Recipient Country Country Management Unit Task Team Leader TFSCB Administration Unit TFSCB Steering Committee Grant Agreement

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. STATCAP • 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

  10. 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

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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

  16. How does a country get started? • Funding – CWIQ Trust Fund • Assistance for pilot & 2 annual national surveys • Part of annual household survey prog. • Covers pilot, TA, equip., dissemination • $400,000 limit • Technical Assistance • Cadre of African consultants • Two regional training centres, EASTC & ENSEA • Product Development • National ‘light’ monitoring survey • Very large samples • Community of practice

  17. Monitoring Systems

  18. 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

  19. Readiness Assessment • To set the context for the development of M&E Action Plans for National Strategies • Incentives & Demands • Roles & responsibilities • Capacity building requirements
