In early June the National Strategy for the Development of Statistics (NSDS) was launched in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea. As a follow-up to this workshop, PARIS21, funded by the World Bank, was invited to implement the first NSDS costing exercise using the Advanced Data Processing Tool (ADAPT). A three-day workshop was undertaken that resulted in internalising the costing and monitoring processes of the NSDS. The NSDS comprises some 58 strategic statistical activities to be implemented from 2016-2018. The ADAPT facilitates the process by assigning activities to key department heads who are responsible for budgeting and monitoring the results. The tool will serve not only to budget activities and plan their implementation but also report on the results framework. The tool will also link to the previously implemented SDG mapping utility. The module was developed in both English and Spanish and will serve to reinforce the workshops planned in Latin America.
