I. Introduction
 The process of socio-economic, political and cultural
integration has always been a core concern of African
leaders;
 Since 1960 several initiatives and legal frameworks
adopted at the highest level have succeeded to accelerate
the integration process and to ensure its sons and
daughters good quality, economic and social welfare;
 For it to fully succeed and ensure that they achieve their
objectives, it requires not only quality statistical
information, but also harmonized data across time and
space in all areas of African integration.
II. Priority statistical requirements
Policy frameworks structuring the African integration process
allows us to highlight three major dimensions of integration,
namely:
 Political integration and regional and continental
governance,
 Economic integration, and
 Social and cultural integration
III. What is SHaSA?
SHaSA: continental effort that directly supports the African
integration agenda;
 Objectives;
–
–
–
Identifying key priority areas of the African integration
process that need to be underpinned by statistics;
Assessing the state of the ASS and various initiatives on
statistical harmonisation; and
Elaborating a continental Strategy for the production and
dissemination of quality harmonised statistics to inform
African development and integration efforts
 Jointly prepared by AUC, AfDB and ECA.
