Asian Development Bank (ADB) – Economics and Statistics

August 30, 2012

Asian Development Bank (ADB) – Economics and Statistics
http://adb.org/data/main

The Asian Development Bank aims for an Asia and Pacific free from poverty. Approximately 1.8 billion people in the region are poor and unable to access essential goods, services, assets and opportunities to which every human is entitled. They are at the forefront of development thinking and practice, spreading information through regional forums, a growing online presence and the publication of specialized papers, serials and books. Economists, sociologists, engineers, gender experts and environmental scientists are amongst the hundreds of professions at the bank working together to reduce poverty, and ensure growth across the Asia and Pacific region is sustainable and inclusive. Economic research and statistical work contributes to knowledge generation in ADB and help strengthen its institutional priorities and effectiveness of country operations. By augmenting the stock of knowledge of developing member countries and the region and disseminating it, ADB’s capability to provide informed policy advice and undertake capacity building is enhanced. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to International Trade Resources Subject Tracer™.

African Development Bank Group (AfDB) – Statistics

August 30, 2012

African Development Bank Group (AfDB) – Statistics
http://www.afdb.org/en/knowledge/statistics/

The African Development Bank Group (AfDB) holds that if the fight against poverty has to be won, there must be improvements in the quality and quantity of statistical data on all components of development. Reliable data is critical to setting goals and targets as well as evaluating project impact. Reliable data constitutes the single most convincing way of getting the people involved in what their leaders and institutions are doing. It also helps them to get involved in the development process, thus giving them a sense of ownership of the entire development process. The AfDB has a large team of researchers who focus on the production of statistical data on economic and social situations. The data produced by the institution’s statistics department constitutes the background information in the Bank’s flagship development publications. Besides its own publication, the AfDB also finances studies in collaboration with its partners. Through its statistics department the AfDB is contributing to the effective development of the statistical capacity and systems of its regional member countries for the provision of timely and reliable data for policy formulation, implementation and evaluation as well as the monitoring of progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Poverty Reduction Strategies.
