Abstract

This paper analyses the monitoring and follow-up of the Millennium Development Goals in Bolivia, focusing on national statistical capacities and institutional arrangements designed to achieve the MDG agenda. The study includes a review of official documents, designed and implemented surveys and interviews with current and former authorities and technicians related to monitoring the MDGs. The study highlights positive elements, such as seven national MDG reports and an established MDG Inter-institutional Council. It also highlights negative elements, such as delays in statistical projects, particularly in health-indicators related to the MDGs; poor quality in sub-national statistics, weaknesses in of the Statistics National Institute; and obsolete legal frameworks on statistics systems. Monitoring post-2015 agenda should be aimed at strengthening both local and national statistical institutions, as well as improving social accountability mechanisms in statistics projects.
