REPORTING ON STATISTICAL DEVELOPMENT Reporting on partners activities in country: CRESS or C-PRESS June 4, 2010 PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 1
Reporting on statistical development June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 2 Reporting part of legal responsibilities, nationally and internationally, accountability, advocacy Reporting is an integral part of the monitoring and evaluation system of NSDS It takes different forms and done by many countries
Reporting on statistical development June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 3 Partners report on country statistical development: WB Bulletin Board, GDDS Country Site, UNSD Country Site AfDB and UNECA for African countries PARIS21: Guide on statistical development reporting, Guide pour un compte rendu sur le developpement de la statistique, draft.
What should include the reporting June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 4 Beyond indicators, annual report Activities, audit, evaluation, statistical development Including reporting on funding statistical development: public expenditure review The role of technical and financing partners: the Country report on partners support to statistics: the CRESS or C-PRESS
The role of technical and financial partners : the CRESS or C-PRESS June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 5 Integrated on the overall partners role Role Statistical development policy advice Funding including funding mechanisms Technical assistance, and advice Partners as users: Using statistics in their own aid policy design

A1 Overall objectives June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 7 To ensure that support to statistical development follows Paris Declaration principles and Accra Agenda for Action (AAA) among which Ownership: support within (and only within) NSDS Alignment: using local systems and avoiding project unit especially for surveys Harmonization: to avoid duplication especially in supporting similar surveys Results: agreeing on results measurement within NSDS M&E Predictability: donors will provide 3-5 year forward information on their planned aid especially for the multi year National Survey Program Conditionality – donors will switch from reliance on prescriptive conditions about how and when aid money is spent to conditions based on the developing country’s own development objectives.
A2 Objectives (from PRESS) June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 8 To learn what development partners are doing in statistical fields To identify areas of statistics in need of more support (within NSS) To raise the profile of statistics within the overall context of aid to the country Design the most appropriate financing mechanism for the country, and increase the efficiency of support Opportunity to establish (or strengthen) a coordinating sub group if it does not exist
B Institutional framework June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 9 Coordination of partners is the responsibility of the country In some countries (especially fragile countries) donors have coordination mechanisms per se Reporting should be the responsibility of the country (the coordinating body of the national statistical system) In some cases or for the first report, partners could take the leading role
C1 Outputs June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 10 National Report (C-PRESS) and Recommendations Mechanism of partners coordination strengthened or established Directory of partners (Directory on national statistical system) Report and annexes available on web site Input in Global PRESS
C 2 Information provided June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 11 Current statistical support (technical and financial) Planned statistical support (technical and financial) Statistical areas being supported Period covered for each activity Amount of money committed and disbursed Mechanisms used
D Methodology June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 12 Following existing partners reporting frame in the country (if any) Following PRESS methodology and nomenclatures related to statistical fields, which will allow aggregation More detailed information adapted to country context, especially about NSS unit receiving the support
E Activities June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 13 Preparation - two possibilities: The partners trough the coordinating body The national council of statistics (through the executive secretariat or other unit) Activities: Identification of donors Identification of NSS units Questionnaire (adapting PRESS questionnaire) Data collection, and processing Report and recommendations Establishing a permanent mechanism to produce the C- PRESS
F Dissemination June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 14 Presentation to the National Council of Statistics Publish in the CSO web site, Communicated to the PRESS team (PARIS21)
G Constraints June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 15 C-PRESS will face constraints identified in the PRESS process: Variety of type of financing with different time frames and nomenclatures, difficulty to identify statistical components in wider project. Size and number of actors of the national statistical system; In addition: Reporting on activities from partners not present in the country.
H Global uses of C-PRESS June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 16 Some pilot country comparisons show that PRESS underestimates the actual support. In the future, with more and more country reports, aggregation will allow a more precise information on the global support to statistics development. In the meantime, country reports will allow to measure PRESS coverage on the real support.
Recommendations June 4, 2010PARIS21 Seminar - OECD Conference Center 17 Countries: to develop their reporting system on statistical development within NSDS, to launch reviews on public expenditures on statistics including C-PRESS, to review and update international sites on reporting, and to disseminate the reports on their web sites. Donors: to inform their country representatives to participate and support country efforts to prepare C-PRESS, and to provide relevant and disaggregated information on support to statistics. PARIS21: to finalize and disseminate the Guide on reporting, and to prepare a Guide on C-PRESS including nomenclatures, and to report annually on C-PRESS
