Statistics for Results Facility Catalytic Fund (SRF-CF) annual report 2010 (English)

The Statistics for Results Facility (SRF) is a multi-donor initiative designed to increase the level of investment in statistical systems in developing countries and to improve the effectiveness of financial and technical assistance. The objective of the SRF, and of the Catalytic Fund (SRF-CF) that supports capacity building in the poorest countries, is to support better policy formulation and decision making through a sustained improvement in the production, availability and use of official statistics. This report is the first annual report issued by the SRF, which began operations in 2009. It summarizes the genesis and objectives of the Facility and the Catalytic Fund, describes the five pilot projects currently underway, and discusses briefly the SRF-CF beyond the pilot phase. The results agenda presents both a challenge and an opportunity for the development and use of statistics in developing countries. The principles of the Paris declaration and the Accra agenda for action require much greater use of national statistics and this increased demand for statistics presents a major opportunity for the managers and staff of statistical agencies in developing countries. At the same time, though, these agencies face the challenge of building the capacity to meet this new demand and to do so in a way that is itself in line with the Paris Declaration and the Accra agenda for action.
