The Trust Fund for Statistical Capacity Building (TFSCB), a multi-donor trust fund, aims to improve the capacity of developing countries to produce and use statistics with an overall objective of supporting effective decision-making for development. The TFSCB works closely with the Partnership in Statistics for Development in the 21st Century (PARIS21) to advance coordinated international efforts to improve statistics globally. The TFSCB supports projects aiming at strengthening national statistical systems in priority areas and developing statistical capacity in a sustainable manner, including piloting innovative approaches to improve data collection.
The deadline to submit a proposal to the Spring 2016 Window is April 15, 2016.
**Please read the TFSCB Guidelines & Procedures very carefully, as the application procedure has changed considerably compared to the pre-Fall 2015 Window.**
To inform potential TTLs about the TFSCB and the application procedure, the TFSCB Administration Unit will arrange "drop-in" information sessions on March 10, 2016 between 2 – 4 pm (contact Ingrid Ivins for location). Another session will be scheduled for March 24 at the same time.
For further information please access the TFSCB Guidelines & Procedures and Required TFSCB Supporting Documentation. You may contact the TFSCB Administration Unit Team for any questions: Ingrid Ivins or Mustafa Dinc.
