    Project
    Strengthening Capacity for Data Processing, Analysis and Management in Papua New Guinea - TCP/PNG/3604 2020

    Papua New Guinea has a centralized statistical system. NSO, under the Ministry of National Planning and Monitoring, is responsible for the collection, compilation and dissemination of all social and economic statistics. It is entrusted with the conduct of all censuses and surveys, and has carried out housing and population censuses in Papua New Guinea since its independence. NSO also compiles National Accounts and has conducted two national-level sample surveys (a Demographic and Health Survey [DHS] and a Household Income and Expenditure Survey), as well as being responsible for a quarterly Consumer Price Index. However, NSO has no staff dedicated to activities related to agriculture statistics, and the national statistics system as a whole suffers from a lack of resources and trained personnel needed to collect agriculture data. An agriculture census has not been conducted in Papua New Guinea for more than four decades. The lack of baseline agricultural statistics is a serious challenge to the Government’s ability to evaluate the impact of agricultural projects and national development indicators in the agriculture and rural development sector. It also compromises the ability of the Government to monitor progress against relevant Sustainable Development Goals. In partnership with the World Bank and the United Nations Statistical Commission, FAO developed a Global Strategy to Improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics, aimed at providing a framework to enable national and international statistical systems to produce basic agricultural data. Preparation work for Papua New Guinea was undertaken in two phases and two main areas requiring technical assistance and training were identified: the processing and analysis of data collected from the DHS; and the preparation of a framework for the conduct of an Agricultural Census. The aim of the project was to provide technical assistance and training in these areas and to strengthen the capacity of the relevant government agencies in Papua New Guinea to process and analyse agriculturalstatistics.
