Support to the Central Administration of Statistics of Lebanon
ICON-INSTITUT supported the Central Administration of Statistics (CAS) in Lebanon with technical assistance in order to improve the quantity and quality of statistical information. The aim was to focus on capacity building of the CAS staff and to provide expertise in the fields of economic and social statistics, as well as cross cutting issues.
With ICON-INSTITUT’s contribution, the project has brought sustainable improvements to the Lebanese system of National Accounts regarding annual and quarterly estimates. The CAS was supported in producing social statistics, and in mainstreaming such core issues as gender and poverty in its work, in line with international standards.
The staffs’ capacities were strengthened through trainings, mostly in the form of learning by doing exercises, so that participants would be proactive, directly apply methodologies and be able to reproduce them in their work.
