The present intervention relates to the Middle Income Countries Technical Assistance Fund (MIC-TAF) grant for Statistical Capacity Building (SCB II) in regional member countries for MDG monitoring & results measurement. This programme should help to enable Statistics Mauritius to improve coordination of the overall National Statistical System in order to provide reliable, relevant, coherent and timely data. This would contribute to more effective economic management, better MDGs/SDGs and poverty monitoring, informed evidencebased policy making as well as to contributing to improvements in the design of future Bank programs and projects. By strengthening statistical capacity in Mauritius, the program would contribute to increasing the capacity of the NSS staff to undertake project/program design and preparation, various feasibility and sector studies, and other country analytical work. The program has four main components: (i) support current activities of the NSS, (ii) improving social statistics, poverty monitoring and analysis, (iii) improving statistics in priority focus areas (infrastructure, gender, agriculture, and governance), (iv) data development, archiving and dissemination.
The main objectives of the program are to build statistical capacity of Statistics Mauritius in order to improve policy formulation, decision making, effective results measurement, and dissemination of critical indicators including for poverty and the MDGs.
The main beneficiaries of the programme are Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies; Academic Institutions; Civil Society; NGOs, Multilateral and other International Organizations; and the Private Sector.
