Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to bank documents, the objective of this project is to strengthen the capacity of the National Statistics Institute (INSTAT) to produce and disseminate quality statistics on population.

The project has two components:

  1. Population and Housing Census. The population census will provide basic demographic and socioeconomic data, key for the planning and monitoring of the Government’s development programs. The objective is to update the socioeconomic and demographic characteristics of Madagascar’s population. The census provides basic information for the monitoring of the SDG indicators, provides the master sampling frame for household surveys, and supports sector planning and monitoring. The data and subsequent analysis will be disaggregated by gender.
  2. Project management. To strengthen the limited capacity at INSTAT, the Bank IDA project has already set up a Project Implementation Unit (PIU) to manage all nontechnical aspects of the project’s activities. This PIU will also be the managing unit of this standalone Trust Fund. In this regard, a separate Designated Account will be opened to separately manage this small grant. As for the IDA project, the PIU will (a) prepare annual work plans (AWPs) and budgets; (b) carry out all disbursements and any financial management (FM) and procurement-related activities in accordance with World Bank-approved procedures; (c) prepare and consolidate periodic progress reports; and (d) monitor and evaluate project activities. The PIU will also ensure that progress is reported quarterly to the Project Steering Committee (PSC), the World Bank, and other authorities.
