that promote growth and help prevent fragility. Statistical CD is important since policy makers need more and better data to craft macroeconomic policies, plus data quality challenges tend to be more acute in FCS. There is also a need for more and timely macroeconomic data for the public, capital markets, and the international community. The annual number of CD missions in statistics to FCS increased by 30 percent between fiscal year (FY) 2016 and FY2019, despite the challenges of working in FCS, including weak absorptive capacity, poor governance, limited resources

Based on internal data, this paper finds that the capacity development program of the IMF’s Statistics Department has prioritized technical assistance and training to fragile and conflict-affected states. These interventions have yielded only slightly weaker results in fragile states than in other states. However, capacity development is constantly needed to make up for the dissipation of progress resulting from insufficient resources that fragile and conflict-affected states allocate to the statistical function, inadequate inter-agency coordination, and the pervasive impact of shocks exogenous to the statistical system. Greater coordination with other capacity development providers and within the IMF can help partially overcome low absorptive capacity in fragile states. Statistical capacity development is more effective when it is tailored to countries’ level of fragility.
