The objectives of the this project were to: establish a base-line for AMCAP and OCAP, with a data-base system installed (Ainaro, Manatuto Community Activation Project); establish a functional monitoring system, whereby the above established indicators can be effectively tracked to determine progress; ensure that the relevant AMCAP and OCAP staff are trained in the effective use of the system, whereby they can independently operate it; and link-up and build capacities of staff within the National Statistical Department (NSD) in relation to the design, analysis and development of the poverty profiling exercise.
