Title: Community Based Monitoring Systems: A Pilot Implementation in Pakistan

Community Based Monitoring Systems A Pilot
Implementation in Pakistan
  • Durre Nayab
  • Pakistan Institute of Development Economics
  • Islamabad

Scheme of Presentation
  • A snapshot of the state of poverty in Pakistan
    and the existing monitoring systems
  • Rationale for having CBMS in the country and
    means to institutionalise it
  • Piloting of CBMS- sites, indicators, field
    methods and survey tools used

Poverty in Pakistan
  • Current monitoring system
  • Mainly Household Income and Expenditure Survey
    (HIES)/Pakistan Integrated Household Survey
    (PIHS) are used to gauge the poverty levels. An
    official poverty line is calculated based on the
    caloric intake per adult per day, which for rural
    areas is 2450 calories/adult/day and 2150 for the
    urban areas. In monetary terms it is equivalent
    to Rs. 848 per capita per month, as calculated in
    June 2004.

Rationale for CBMS and its Institutionalisation
in Pakistan
  • Most of the available data in the country is
    on the national, provincial or district level.
  • Collection of local level and disaggregated
    information for policy planning and
    implementation is the prime motivation behind
    implementing CBMS at the lowest level

Administrative Structure of Pakistan
Institutionalisation of CBMS
  • Under the 2002 Local Government Ordinance powers
    were devolved to lower administrative levels.
  • Neighbourhood/village councils are to be formed
    in urban and rural areas under this plan.
  • Collection of statistics on socio-economic
    indicators is among the prescribed duties of
    these councils.
  • Compilation and consolidation of this data is
    done by National Reconstruction Bureau (NRB)
    through National Reconstruction Information
    Management Systems (NARIMS).

CBMS-NRB/NARIMS A Symbiotic Relation
  • CBMS needs means to sustain and
    institutionalise the system once the pilot phase
    is over, and NRB/NARIMS could provide this
  • NRB/NARIMS by including the indicators at the
    household level, as suggested by the CBMS, could
    become a more comprehensive and useful database

  • Facilitate policy planning and budget allocations
    through reliable and updated data, and aiding in
    prioritisation of problems and improving
    allocative efficiency.
  • Encourage community participation for the
    successful implementation of any programme by
    increasing the capacity of the local community
    for data collection, processing and analysis.
  • Monitor progress on core indicators that impact
    lives of the people.
  • Facilitate the Rural Support Programs (RSPs)
    reach the ones needing help the most.
  • Collection of data for research purposes at the
    smallest level in the country

CBMS Piloting Locales
Indicators at the Household Level-I
  • 1. Age and sex composition
  • 2. Marital status
  • 3. Education
  • Primary enrolment rate
  • Secondary enrolment rate
  • Basic literacy
  • Vocational training 
  • 4. Employment and income
  • Employment. Unemployment Underemployment
    Households above poverty line 
  • 5. Health
  • Infant mortality
  • Child mortality
  • General state of health
  • Number of births attended by trained
    professionals Child immunisation
  • Coverage of antenatal care 
  • Coverage of post-natal
  • care
  • Contraceptive prevalence rate
  • 6. Nutrition
  • Prevalence of malnutrition 
  • Childhood anthropometric measures

Indicators at the Household Level-II
  • 7. Peace and Order
  • Crime incidence
  • Action by law enforcing agencies against
    reported crimes 
  • 8. Housing and sanitation Type of house
    ownership. Type of house construction Percentage
    of households having access to toilets Percentage
    of households having access to sewerage facility.
  • Garbage collection method from households 
  • 9. Political participation
  • Number of eligible and registered voters and
    those actually voting
  • Presence and participation of/in village
  • Accessibility of public representatives 

Indicators at the Village Level
  • Educational facilities, including primary,
    middle, secondary, and post-secondary educational
  • Health facilities
  • Available services, e.g., police station, post
    office, bank, transport facilities, gas,
    electricity, telephone, etc.,
  • Road network available to the community
  • Water supply facility
  • Garbage and waste disposal
  • Incidence and type of crimes committed
  • Presence of village organisations and their

Survey Tools
  • Three questionnaires have been designed for the
    pilot phase
  • Male
  • Female
  • Community

Selection of Field Enumerators
  • The PIDE team is supervising the pilot phase but
    local monitoring teams have also been constituted
    to keep a watch on the progress of the survey.
  • The selected local enumerators include
  • Members of local health and education
    departments, mainly teachers
  • Local youth, with minimum qualification of BA

Sustainability of CBMS
  • Closer liaison between administration and
    community is the first pre-requisite for
    sustaining the System.
  • Incorporation of the CBMS with the NRB-NARIMS
    design is a positive sign for the sustainability
    of CBMS after the pilot phase.
