Project Description
The Project’s objective is to increase the capacity of the national statistical institute (ICASEES) to produce and publicly disseminate statistics through data recovery, institutional development and support to data production. The project comprises two components; 1- Statistical recovery, project management and professionalization and modernization of ICASEES’ management and 2- Data production, capacity building and dissemination. The project has a total cost of US$10.49 million equivalent provided through an IDA grant (US$ 10 million equivalent) and TFSCB trust fund (US$494,000 equivalent). Capacity building is an integral aspect of the project, with staff receiving training tailored to the activities for which they are responsible, preferably from peers, particularly those from the sub-region. In the selection and definition of project activities, particular attention has been paid to the fact that the CAR is expected to remain insecure during the implementation period. Consequently, the purchase of assets and durable goods is minimized to reduce potential losses in the event of elevated insecurity, while remote supervision (CAPI) and use of the cloud for data storage and archiving are encouraged. The project adheres to open data principles and all data produced with World Bank funding will be made publicly available, provided it meets confidentiality standards.
