EU-ASEAN Capacity Building Project for Monitoring Integration Progress and Statistics (COMPASS)

Karsten Weitzenegger is in Jakarta, Indonesia in August 2017 to develop a tailored monitoring and evaluation system for the COMPASS project. He updates the COMPASS log frame and establishes a dynamic system of follow-up to ensure the indicators are true and relevant and enable a stronger reporting process of project’s outcomes and impacts and thus a better steering of the project.

Funded by the European Commission, the EU-ASEAN Statistical Capacity Building Project (COMPASS) is based on the central premise that ASEAN’s internal integration as well as its integration into the global economy serve to accelerate economic development in the less developed countries in the region and to narrow the gap among its Member States.

Building on achievements of the EU-ASEAN Statistical Capacity Building Programme (EASCAB, 2009-2013), COMPASS helps ASEAN integration through the availability and utilisation of more timely, comparable and relevant information. COMPASS facilitates monitoring and decision-making, notably by ASEAN governments acting individually and at ASEAN level. COMPASS is implemented by Expertise France.

The project has two objectives:
