Trust Fund for Statistical Capacity Building (TFSCB)
The Trust Fund for Statistical Capacity Building (TFSCB), a multi-donor trust fund, helps improving 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 innovative approaches to improve data collection and use, and openness and accessibility of data in line with the Open Data Initiative.
The TFSCB closed its last Call for Proposals in Fall 2018. The selected projects will focus on the Statistical Capacity Building activities for the two areas; Administrative data and Counting groups/areas that are difficult to capture.
The TFSCB is planned to close in December 2020. Learn more about these projects and the TFSCB in the DOCUMENTS section below.
