Project Description
The objective of the National Statistics and Data for Development Project for Mozambique is to improve the production and dissemination of quality socioeconomic statistics. The project will also support the use of data in evidence-based policy making through improved capacity for spatial development planning and aid data management. There are four components to the project, the first component being INE institutional strengthening and capacity building. The component will support strengthening INE’s ability to strategically plan and coordinate the vision for the NSS as well as provide quality assurance in the production of statistics. This component also supports the foundational human resources and ICT infrastructure necessary for INE to lead the NSS and fulfill its mandate as the main producer of timely and objective official data and statistics. The second component is the data collection, analysis, and dissemination. This component comprises four subcomponents: population and housing census, welfare monitoring system, national accounts, consumer price indicators, and economic statistics, and data accessibility. The third component is the mainstreaming spatial development planning. The aim of this component is to enhance SDP capacity across priority national government agencies, ensure the sustainability and institutionalization of the PDE, and enhance development of skills in spatial planning in Mozambique’s public sector. Finally, the fourth component is the aid data management for enhanced planning, budgeting, and monitoring. The objective of this component is to enhance the GoM’s aid data management for improved planning, budgeting, and monitoring of overall development spending.
