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

2 2 TFSCB F Multi-donor trust fund set up in 1999 F Closely coordinated with PARIS21 F Goal is to help reduce poverty by strengthening the evidence-base for decision making at all levels F Shared vision with PARIS21 - to develop effective and efficient national statistical systems and to promote a culture of evidence-based decision-making

3 3 Focus of Activities F Main objective is to strengthen national statistical systems F But also allows for regional and global actions where these are justified F Small grants, maximum of $400,000 with a maximum implementation period of three years

4 4 TFSCB funded activities can be F Country-specific –NSDS –Support for PRSP monitoring –Improvement in macro/or sectoral statistics; –Improvement of statistical infrastructure –Training F Regional –Workshops, seminars etc, regional coordination. F Global –Research, PARIS21 initiatives, etc

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

6 6 Project Implementation F Preferred model is for country implementation F Statistical agencies gain experience in project management and implementation F Bank implementation is allowed, but must be justified F For some projects, spilt implementation has worked well

7 7 Some Outcomes F Leverage in projects: donor funds have been matched by other resources – including scarce resources from recipients F Follow-on investments: TFSCB has stimulated larger investment projects (e.g. Kenya, Burkina Faso, Nigeria) F Leadership: countries are often prepared to fund activities themselves, but look to PARIS21 and TFSCB for technical guidance

8 8 Some Lessons F Linkage of the Trust Fund with a strong global partnership is vital F With small grants, need to focus on those projects which leverage further investments F Need flexibility to respond to priority needs F Processes need to be streamlined but must still be rigorous F Need for a good advocacy strategy

9 9 STATCAP F National statistical systems under pressure –Under-investment and a vicious cycle of poor performance and inadequate resources F Need to focus on both demand and supply F Need for a long-term approach F But focus on results and outputs

10 10 How will STATCAP work? F A new WB lending instrument for statistical capacity building –System wide or focused on particular areas F 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 F Designed to be a simple, user-friendly lending facility

11 11 How will STATCAP work? F Based on a Project Appraisal Document (PAD). F PAD will be based on a Statistical Master Plan (SMP) for the country F The SMP will cover the entire national statistical system, even if the project is to finance SCB in only one area

12 12 Statistical Master Plan F Based on national strategies for statistical development –Identify strengths and weaknesses, –Propose an action plan F Includes –Statistical policy and the regulatory framework, management and organization –Statistical infrastructure –Statistical operations and procedures –Physical infrastructure and equipment.

13 13 What will StatCap finance? F Improving statistical policy and regulatory framework F Development of statistical infrastructure F Upgrading and developing statistical operations and procedures F Human resource development F Investment in physical infrastructure and equipment

14 14 Assessing progress F NSDS will set strategic objectives F Each stage of country project will have specific goals and targets F Make use of new assessment tools: –GDDS, DQAF and statistical capacity building indicators

15 15 WORLD BANK SUPPORT F More information

16 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

18 18 Monitoring Systems Information Collection Analysis Evidence based decision making

19 19 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

20 20 Readiness Assessment To set the context for the development of M&E Action Plans for National Strategies Incentives & Demands Roles & responsibilities Capacity building requirements
