In close collaboration with the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, PARIS21, United Nations Economic Commission for Africa and other partners, the AfDB is conducting regional training workshops and providing financial and technical support necessary to accomplish ICP-Africa work at the country level. National statistics agencies will be responsible for country-level data collection and program management. At the sub-regional level, selected Sub-Regional Organizations (SROs) are responsible for managing activities in the countries for the price collection phase (adaptation of survey methodology to suit local conditions, training and field work) of the program. SROs in Africa will help ensure that the statistics capacity building initiative optimally fits in with sub-regional recommendations and programs applicable to their member states and would also use ICP and SNA93 as integrated tools for the assessment of their economic convergence.
