Overview of the Global Strategy And achievements G.S. was developed by FAO and the World Bank in collaboration with all key stakeholders.
Why a Global Strategy Now Decline in the availability and quality data and information National statistical capacity for agricultural statistics has significantly deteriorated over the last decades Wide gap between data requirements and availability of quality data Unreliable statistics for decision makers to deal with the new emerging needs
UNSC endorsed technical content of GS Feb 2010 (41 st Session) First Draft of the Global Strategy and African Action Plans Oct 2010 KAMPALA /UGANDA (ICAS V) –Africa first region to initiate implementation of GS- FAO endorsed GS by 36 th Conference session Nov 2010 AFCS (2009) APCS 2010 Agr. Ministers of the G20 Support of GS (Paris June 2011) UNSC fully endorsed the GS 45 th session Marsh 2012 UNSC United Nations Statistical Conference ICAS: International Conference on Agricultural Statistics Some important dates & events
Global Strategy to Improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics The First Pillar - Identifying a Minimum set of Core Data (Including Economic, social and environmental variables and National Priorities) on a sustainable basis allowing comparability over time and between countries The Second Pillar - Integration of Agriculture into the National Statistical System (develop a Master Sample Frame for Agriculture, Integrated survey and integrate database- storage, access, dissemination) Technical assistance Training Program Methodological research Country assessment Governance & Resource mobilization The Third Pillar - The Sustainability of Agricultural Statistics (through Governance and Statistical Capacity Building) Action Plan
Identify and provide Minimum set of Core Data on a regular basis Items should respond to national and international needs Item that contribute to the country s food and household income; Items that together, contribute to 75pct of the value of the country production; Items that account for a significant portion of the land use. Items covering crops, livestock, fishery and aquaculture and forestry Items covering economic, environmental an social indicators dimensions Ensure data quality dimension (accuracy, relevance, timeliness, comparability, availability and accessibility)
Integration of agriculture into national statistics system (NSS) Integration of agriculture into national statistics system (NSS) Methodology to Integrate Agriculture Methodology to Integrate Agriculture Master Sampling Frame (common sample frame) Master Sampling Frame (common sample frame) Integrated Data Base ( census, survey, administrative ) Integrated Data Base ( census, survey, administrative ) Integrated Survey Framework Integrated Survey Framework Labour Education Transport etc Agriculture Health NSO main elements upon which the integration will be achieved
The Sustainability of Agricultural Statistics Governance Structure to coordinate national statistics system Formalize global, Regional and national coordination National statistics council Capacity building Assessment of capacity Training and technical assistance Research (new tech: Remote sensing, PDAs..)
Action plan (articulated in three integrated components) Technical assistance - Development and documentation of statistical standards and technical guidelines -Delivery of technical assistance to countries for capacity development Training Program - Training materials (e- learning courses) Targeted research agenda -Aiming at developing and disseminating advanced and cost- effective methodologies, tools and standards -On priority topics -Qualified regional and international institutions
Action plan (includes) Country Assessment -Evaluate National agricultural statistics -Baseline for Monitoring and Evaluation (against which progress can be measured) Two stages assessment 1 st stage: Use of standardized questionnaire (basic infrastructure & capacity to produce min set of data Country grouping ( with similar level of NSD ) Use assessment to propose statistical material and activities 2 nd stage: In-depth assessment Expert visits (Users needs, data quality) Country proposals (and cost estimates)
Action plan (describes) Governance Financial flows and Strategy for resources mobilization and technical support(resource mobilization/donor agencies) Implementation strategy Global Steering Committee (GSC) (approve plans) Global Executive Board (Sub-group of GSC) Global Office (at FAO/Stat DIV) Global Level Regional Steering Committee (assess proposals) Regional Executive Board Regional Office Regional Level National Strategy Coordinator Technical Working Group National Level G.S. Governance structure
Increase the number of countries capacity to produce /analyze/disseminate minimum core set of core data Increase the number of countries with sustainable agriculture integrated in the NSS Increase the number of people with appropriate skills via training technical assistance Action plan expected outcomes
Regional plans achievements AfricaAsia and the PacificLatin America and the Caribbean Other Regions. Plan already developed by AfDB, UNECA, FAO.. ESCAP Committee on Statistics established a Subgroup to lead the preparation of the regional Action Plan Working Group (WG) was tasked with the development of the Regional Plan and its implementation Several activities have been undertaken, in close collaboration with the regional offices of the FAO, to involve other regional partners, including United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) and Islamic Development Bank (IDB) RSC for Africa has been established to lead the preparation of the regional Action Plan Executive Board has also been established and its members have been identified The standard questionnaire for the country assessment has been sent to all countries in Asia and the Pacific Region AfDB and UNECA are the PPs for regional technical assistance and training activities respectively Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) will be a key partner institution for the implementation of the Action Plan in the Pacific The Regional Office is being set up in AfDB
The Strategy is a long term effort; The Strategy suggests that each country establishes a national statistical council to coordinate the integration of agriculture The steps to implement the strategic plan will depend upon the statistical capacity of each country Global strategy Action Plan only defines the steps to be taken and the overall responsibilities (Global, Regional a and National) Not every Region will develop a detailed implementation plan similar to Africas, but rather a regional activity program based on Global Action Plan Implantation of the action plan should also be a county driven process Recognize That
