The project is implemented in all African Development Fund (ADF) eligible Member states, Regional Economic Communities and Statistical Training Centers. The SCB program is the fifth (SCB-5) of ADF funded cycles for strengthening statistical capacity in Africa and is anchored on many years of accumulated practical experience and incremental value addition to the African Statistical System. The SCB-5 will be crucial for maintaining the momentum built on past gains whilst shielding against possible reversal of the gains made across the continent in recent years. The program will focus on the following components: Improving the availability and quality of economic statistics, including the measurement of the COVID-19 impact, Improving the quality and availability of Social Statistics and reporting on COVID-19, Data Collection, Management and Dissemination and Strategic Planning, Systems Development, Coordination and Training.
