South Africa – Statistical Capacity Building (SCB II) in Regional Member Countries for MDG Monitoring and Results Measurement - Project Completion Report


The original program development objective was to assist the country to improve the National Statistical System (NSS) in order to provide high quality, reliable and timely data. This would contribute to more effective economic management, better MDGs/SDGs and poverty monitoring, informed evidence-based policy making as well as to contributing to improvements in the design of future Bank programs and projects. The program activities would enhance Statistical Capacity Building through institutional capacity strengthening and training of staff of the NSS, focussing on improvement of data collection, analysis, management, archiving and dissemination.
