  1. Funding the Implementation of the Busan Action Plan for Statistics World Bank Meeting of Statistical Capacity Development Donors, 29 March, 2012 Paris, France

  2. Outline 2 • Re-cap initial financing requirements for BAPS implementation • Review of World Bank funding instruments to support BAPS: • Criteria for re-purposing • Stock-taking / re-purposing of TFSCB and SRF • Other instruments supporting BAPS

  3. Initial financing requirements 3 • Key initiatives have sound financing (Agriculture $50m and Gender $6m) • Other initiatives are not expensive ($8-$12m): • Examples: NSDS update, Open Data Initiatives in country, pilot high-frequency stats, PARIS21 strengthening • Regional Development Banks to rely on current financing instruments

  4. Criteria for re-purposing 4 • Must clearly support BAPS actions • Maintain original core objectives • e.g. TFSCB for small scale operations, SRF for country-specific approaches • Coordinate with activities in other institutions • Maintain the balance between: • Large- and small-scale operations • Global, regional, & national level approaches • Maintain flexibility and responsiveness

  5. TFSCB effective for small scale activities, but funding levels are low 5 • Invested almost $39 million in over 200 projects since 2000 • Covered all the regions -- the largest number of projects in Sub-Saharan Africa • Received positive assessment from Bank’s Independent Evaluation Group • Historically allocates about $3-4 million/year, grants under $500k • Currently only $2.5m remaining

  6. TFSCB funding demands exceeding supply Administrative changes helped free up additional funding and track results: • Rigorous monitoring of project activation process • Reallocation of funds from inactive projects • Assessment and dissemination of project outcomes and good practices …..Yet available funding was weak leading to 16 projects approvals (compared to over 30 in 2010) • 11 country specific, 5 global/regional projects • 9 SCB, 4 NSDS, 3 mixed projects 6

  7. TFSCB Re-purposing strategy 7 Demands exceed $3m per annum through FY16 for core and new activities: • Support updates/revisions to NSDSs (core activity) • Support open data initiatives in countries • Open Government Partnership now at 50+ member countries requiring fast track assessments & other small targeted scale support • Pilot “horizontal” initiatives, test new ideas (e.g. high frequency data pilots, train users) • Customize support for fragile states

  8. Statistics for Results Catalytic Fund (SRF) builds support for large-scale operations 8 • Pilot phase expanded to eight counties • Approach has: • Stimulated support for implementing National Statistical Strategies • Promoted a system-wide approach for statistics at country level; • Promoted improved coordination and partnership between statistics users and statistical producers

  9. SRF pilots progressing, financing is sufficient 9 Pilot status • Afghanistan and Nigeria are effective • Ghana and Rwanda approved, should begin disbursing shortly • Lao PDR and Senegal under preparation • DRC project concept approved • New Pilot: Ethiopia work underway to develop application/concept note Financial status • Expected expenditures for pilot countries is over $70m • $50m remains for other countries.

  10. SRF Re-purposing strategy 10 • Ensure original purpose of the SRF will remain the major focus • Explore quick disbursing grants to countries to test innovative approaches Example: high frequency data collection pilots could increase use of data in decision-making & improve data collection techniques • Expand scope of support to targeted areas to improve results Example: pilot improvements to select admin data sources that are critical to M&E Systems or vital registration data

  11. Repurposing Other WB instruments 11 • IBRD/IDA lending (large scale projects) • Broaden approach to budget support and results based lending • Trust Fund supporting East Europe/CIS (large and small scale): • New partnership with Russia (ECASTAT) to finance regional and country programming • Trust fund for household micro-data (small scale): • Explore support of applying curation techniques to admin data and enterprise statistics (small scale, bank staff). • Development Grant Facility • Current funding through FY16 to support key partners (PARIS21 & UNSD)
