AID MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR NEPAL
Agreement has been signed on February 29, 2016.
Component 1: Strengthening capacity of the National Statistical System (NSS) in Nepal;
£5m to support capacity development of the national statistical system in Nepal (including the Central Bureau of Statistics and other statistics-producing line ministries). This will ensure early implementation of the forthcoming National Strategy for the Development of Statistics (NSDS).
Component 2: Strengthening GoN capacity for evidence generation and uptake;
£3m to strengthen the generation and use of evidence by key GoN policy and decision-makers, including dedicated support to the National Planning Commission (NPC).
Component 3: Strengthened District-level data systems and information for effective needs assessment;
Up to £5m to strengthen district-level systems and information, both nationally and with a specific focus on the Districts affected by the 2015 earthquake. While this may include support to existing GoN district data systems (for example, DPMAS or WBRS) it will be the primary component through which DFID Nepal will support evidence generation within the Districts most-affected by the 2015 earthquake. This programme document is intentionally flexible around earthquake response initiatives, which will ensure an opportunistic mechanism is in place to respond to emerging evidence needs.
Component 4: GoN and general Open Data Initiatives.
£2m to strengthen GoN’s aid effectiveness agenda, primarily through improving the quality and effectiveness of Open Data including the Ministry of Finance Aid Management Platform (AMP). There are also a number of open data initiatives in Nepal outside of government and we will seek to strengthen these further.
