Ecuador - Agricultural Census and Information System Technical Assistance Project (English)

The Agricultural Census and Information System Technical Assistance Project for Ecuador aims to improve availability, consistency, validity, and timeliness of agricultural information to facilitate the decision-making process in both the public and private sectors. The project has five components. The Agricultural Policy component 1) strengthens sector policy analysis capacity; and 2) strengthens the budget analysis and investment monitoring and evaluation process at the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG). The Agricultural Information and Dissemination Service component improves 1) information services on crops and livestock; 2) market prices and news services of MAG; 3) agroclimatic impact evaluations; and 4) MAG Computer Center services. The Agricultural Sample Census component supports designing, preparing, and executing the national Agricultural Sample Census; and strengthens the data processing capacity of the National Statistics and Census Institute. The Agricultural Farm Production Survey component improves the national agricultural production survey methodology, speeds processing turn-around, conducts two production surveys per year, and executes one farm expenditure survey during the life of the project. The fifth component is project management.
