Mali_mobilization of funds

In Mali, with the support of the Group of technical and financial statistics partners, an item on the Statistics Master Plan was included on the agenda of the conference that met in June 2009 on the financing of the strategic poverty reduction framework. At this conference, the statistics group intervened on behalf of all the technical and financial partners to argue the case for the financing of the Statistics Master Plan. Thanks to the initiatives taken by the group, technical and political reviews were organised every year at ministerial level to assess the implementation of the Statistics Master Plan. This mechanism has not only made it possible to significantly reduce the percentage of activities planned but not completed due to a lack of financing, but also to mobilise financing for the priority Statistics Master Plan activities whose budgets were not fixed.
