6th Meeting of CoDGs 30 Nov. – 2 Dec Yamoussoukro, Côte dIvoire SHaSA STG1 on Governance, Peace and Security (GPS) Statistics Progress Report
Background & Proposal GPS data as key theme in global measurement initiatives Measuring progress of society, AU commitments, etc. Need for Africa sensitive GPS data planning, monitoring policies, early warning, voice Current situation Lack of country level data Proliferation of international indices But governance data=public good (national sovereignty) Proposal Harmonize and institutionalize GPS statistics under NSOs coordination (with dedicated GPS units within NSOs)
Why NSOs? public institution official legitimacy expertise in the statistical field established standards and procedures large sample permit disaggregation ensure sustainability of data collection cost-effectiveness of add-on modules instances of experience in GPS statistics (examples)

Action Plan: Roadmap (2013-4) Strategic ThemesActivities (Phase 1) 1. Produce quality statistics for Africa 5 country pilots (household survey + admin) 2. Coordinate production - Creation of dedicated GPS units in NSOs - Creation of dedicated GPS units in RECs - Creation of dedicated GPS units in AUC 3. Develop sustain-able capacity - Training of NSOs in administration, processing & analysis of HH module & admin instrument - Training of Ministries/Agencies (admin data) 4. Promote evidence-based culture - Advocacy towards political leadership - Wide dissemination of results (Goverment, MPs, Civil Society, Academia, Media)
Action Plan: Roadmap (2015-7) Second phase ( ) Extension to 10 further countries Capacity building Development of regional networks Consolidation, refinement, dissemination and advocacy for 1 st phase countries Third phase (2017) Extension to 15 further countries Institutionalization and sustainability International exchange and comparison
Action Plan: Tentative Budget US $ SHaSA Strategic theme STG#1 broad objectives Phase 1: Total over Produce quality statistics for Africa Collection, analysis of survey and admin. data on GPS (5, plus 10, plus 15 countries) 500,0003,800, Coordinate production Establishment and activities of GPS units in NSOs, RECs and AU Statistics Division, and STG#1 725,0003,350, Develop sustain- able capacity Infrastructure and capacity building in GPS units in country NSOs, RECs and AU Stats Division 279,0002,100, Promote evidence-based culture Outreach for GPS to Africa mechanisms (APRM, AGP, etc.), and country stake- holders (MPs, media, CSOs, academia) 96,000750,000 Totals 1,600,00010,000,000
Recommendations Adoption of the Approach 5 country pilots: expression of interest Establishment of GPS Units in NSOs and in the AU Statistics Division
