The Harambee Simulation Exercise ("Let's work togehter" in Kisauheli) has been developed by the Munich Centre for Advanced Training in applied statistics for developing countries of Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft e.V. in Munich and the Food Studies Group at Queen Elizabeth House at the University of Oxford in 1987.  It has been commissioned and financed by the Statistical Office of the European Communities (Eurostat) in Luxembourg.  An earlier version of the exercise was prepared by the two organisations listed above together with INSEE in Paris.

 The first version of the Exercise was designed for use in a series of seminars for the users and providers of statistics in the field of food and agricultural statistics which have been held in a number of sub-Saharan African countries.  The second version has been prepared for continued use in these seminars, but also so that the Exercise can be made more widely available to training centres in Africa and elsewhere.  Both English and French versions of the Exercise have been prepared and a Portuguese version is under development.

The HARAMBEE seminar has been exercised in Tanzania, Rwanda, Mali, Zimbabwe and Malawi

The Harambee Simulation Exercise has been developed by the Munich Centre for Advanced Training in applied statistics for developing countries of Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft e.V. in Munich, the Food Studies Group at Queen Elizabeth House at the University of Oxford and its earlier version with collaboration of INSEE, France.

The work has been initiated by the Commission of the European Communities in the framework of the 5th EDF project "EEC Assistance to the Statistical Training Programme for Africa (STPA)". The follow-up has been ensured by EUROSTAT, Luxembourg.

A first version of the Exercise was designed for use in a series of seminars for the users and providers of statistics in the field of food and agricultural statistics which have been held in a number of Sub-Saharan African countries. A revised version has been prepared for continued use by ACP countries, especially statistical services, ministries and training centres. Both English and French versions of the Exercise are available.

The Simulation Exercise is designed to initiate discussions and collaboration between users and producers of statistics in developing countries.

The exercise is focused on the use of statistics in food sector planning and policy making in Sub-Saharan African countries.

The final Harambee Exercise has been worked out on basis of these concepts by: Jane Corbett, Jean-Luc Dubois, Graham Eele, Peter Greener, Robert Griffin and Klaus R÷der.

The concept of the Exercise was developed by a steering committee formed by members of the following institutions:

Statistical Office of the European Communities (EUROSTAT) - Luxembourg Overseas Development Administration (ODA) - London Institut National de la Statistiques et des Etudes Economiques (INSEE) - Paris Institut International d'Administration Publique (IIAP) - Paris UniversitÚ Catholique - Leuven Statistisches Bundesamt - Wiesbaden
