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.

recommendations. Data quality issues undermine Fund surveillance of FCS more acutely than in non-FCS. Results-based management (RBM) ratings for CD are only slightly weaker for FCS than for non-FCS, indicating that efforts to tailor CD objectives and outcomes to the FCS context are generally successful. Since FY2016, the Statistics Department’s (STA) CD delivery to FCS had risen significantly, but the onset of the COVID-19 crisis in FY2020 weakened demand. Thanks to shorter, ad hoc interventions to address urgent issues identified by the statistical compilers, the share of FCS
