The Bureau with technical assistance from the African Development Bank (AfDB) has started rolling out the process. In this connection, a number of activities have been undertaken including the following:
The NSDS design team has been constituted with Mr. Benjamin Avusevwa as NSDS Coordinator. Sensitization and statistical advocacy have been and continue to be done as a “permanent activity” of the process. Some high level Government officials have been sensitized and a Data User-Producer workshop was held in September 2013 to sensitize key stakeholders.
Capacity has been built through a training workshop for statisticians across government and a training workshop for the NSDS design team.
A road map for guiding the whole process has been designed, instruments for collecting information have been designed, sectors for the first phase of the NSDS process have been selected, and a monthly NSDS Bulletin will been produced to keep stakeholders informed about the progress made.
