Description

Project Summary

At the request of the Government of Cabo Verde, the Bank intends to participate in the financing of the 3rd Population and Reproductive Health Survey, through an ADF loan of UA 470,000. The objective of the project is to help the country design and formulate results-based policies through efficient measurement and monitoring of its demographic and health trends. This survey facilitates the implementation of the Government's priorities described in the 2012-2016 Growth and Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (GPRSP III), which targets inclusive economic growth and gender promotion. The project is consistent with the priorities of the Bank's 2014-2018 Country Strategy Paper (CSP).

The main expected outcome of the project is the improvement of statistics on population, health, education and the protection of women and children. This will enhance monitoring of the country's progress towards attainment of the Millennium Development Goals through the use of international norms and standards to collect, process, analyse and disseminate statistical indicators. Specifically, the survey will seek to address the abiding need for data to plan, monitor and evaluate health and population programmes, and to build the institutional capacity to collect, process, analyse, disseminate and use data.

The absence of accurate and updated data frustrates the implementation of an inclusive development policy. Despite the political will to address gender issues, there are few concrete political initiatives directly aimed at improving the gender balance. This survey could result in the development of a better policy targeting vulnerable communities, enhanced monitoring/evaluation of GPRSP III, the drafting of its completion report and the preparation of GPRSP IV.

The Bank has experience in the financing of population and health surveys in Africa (Equatorial Guinea, Gabon). In Cabo Verde, it has provided technical assistance since 2003 in the areas of national accounts, price statistics as well as data collection and dissemination platforms (data accessible to the public and data portal), under the Bank's Africa Information Highway initiative.

The project will contribute to national capacity-building in social statistics. Its activities will contribute to the development of a critical mass of skills that will help to offset the shortage of human resources needed to conduct socio-demographic surveys, KAP studies and other specific surveys that the country will need in future, especially the preparation and execution of future population and reproductive health surveys.


Rationale

Project Linkages to Country Strategy and Objectives

1.1.1 The project facilitates implementation of the Government's priorities outlined in the Growth and Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (GPRSP III) for 2012-2016, which targets inclusive economic growth and gender promotion. Although there is the political will to address gender issues, there are few concrete political initiatives directly aimed at improving the gender balance, due to the lack of reliable and updated data that can be used to determine the real scope of gender disparities. Eight years after IDSR-II, this 3rd Population and Reproductive Health Survey (IDSR-III) will review and analyse the real status of social indicators with respect to survival, family planning and the protection of children and women in 2015.

1.1.2 The data collected and the results generated from its analysis will be used for development planning by the Government, UN agencies, NGOs and all the country's partners. Indeed, conduct of IDSR-III by the National Institute of Statistics (Instituto Nacional de Estat
