Central America Statistical Commission , CENTROESTAD
 The Council of Foreign Affairs Ministers of SICA, aware of the need to
strengthen the dynamics of the integration process, by providing reliable,
updated and timely regional statistical information, agreed on December 10,

Commission (CENTROESTAD), integrated by the directors of the National
Statistical Offices (or Institutes) of the member countries.

Regional Strategy for the Development of Statistics (RSDS)
FORMALIZATION OF RSDS (ERDE)
 RSDS was formalized at XLIII Ordinary meeting of Head of State and
Government of the Countries Member of the Integration Central America System,
SICA, held in Dominican Republic on June 27, 2014.
 Agreement 16: “Instruct CENTROESTAD integrated by the National
Statistic Offices in coordination with SG SICA, to start ERDE’s Action Plan,
implementing the necessary steps to accomplish this goal. We urge the
cooperation of international organizations specialized in statistics to
support the execution of this initiative”
Level of complimentarity between ENDE and ERDE: concrete measures to
promote complimentarity
 The process of RSDS (ERDE) elaboration lasted two years, it was a process with a lot of
participation leaded by the NSO and coordinated by SG SICA with PARIS21and the World
Bank’ support. SICA’s Institution also intervened in this process providing statistical information
of the regional needs.
 The majority of countries members of SICA had their own NSDS (ENDE) when the design
of RSDS (ERDE) started; this facilitated the identification and inclusion of national priorities.
 Despite the noticeable asymmetries on the development level of the NSO (ONE) and the
NES (SEN) of the region, the problems among the countries are relatively similar, which
facilitated the consensus of the priorities that needed to be included in the RSDS (ERDE).
 The RSDS (ERDE) was approved within the framework of SICA institution and their legal
regulations, under their own creation status, which contributed to its clarity on regional
priorities and national interests.
Level of complimentarity between ENDE and ERDE: concrete measures to
promote complimentarity
 The regional policies that impulses SICA through its institutionalism are based on the
complimentarity principle with the national policies, this same principle is taken by RSDS
(ERDE).
 The complimentarity is promoted within the framework of biannual ordinary meetings to follow up
on the execution of ERDE’s Action Plan.
 Although RSDS (ERDE) establishes the regional statistical development horizon for mid-long
term, there is flexibility to address the priorities of a country or a group of countries.
 The international cooperation in Central America contributes to the complimentary of
statistical projects, establishing this principle as an eligibility criterion for technical and financial
assistance projects.
What can be accomplished at an RSDS (ERDE) but not on an NSDS (ENDE)
 RSDS (ERDE) allows compensating the reduction of technical cooperation and financial
aid at the national level. The initiative of creating CENTROESTAD emerges from the reduction
of bilateral cooperation to the countries. The donors recommended the creation of a regional
statistical entity within the framework of the regional integration of SICA, to receive technical and
financial assistance.
 RSDS (ERDE) generates scale economies to the donors, attracting interest on certain type of
statistical projects.
 RSDS (ERDE) represents a model of statistical development that becomes a reference for
ENDE.
 The projects contained in the RSDS (ERDE) have an added value at the national level, because
the countries can request financial support stating that the projects are regional priorities.
Statistical priorities of countries members of SICA at an RSDS (ERDE) and
regional compromises at NSDS (ENDE)
 In general, RSDS (ERDE) contemplates the national statistical priorities of
NSDS (ENDE), even though not necessarily NSDS (ENDE) includes regional
priorities.
 The NSO (ONE) are usually willing to establish a general framework of
requirements for statistical development at a regional level (there is a
culture of cooperation at the Statistics of the Americas Conference of the
Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (CEPAL),
however, at the national level the decision makers at NES (SEN) are not
always sensitive to regional priorities.
Conclusion
In the field of NSDS and RSDS, the process of RSDS (ERDE)
of CENTROESTAD has been a success, thanks to PARIS21
support.
THANK YOU
