US$85.5 Million Needed For 2022 Population Census

The government is in need of US$85 Million to conduct the scheduled 2022 population and housing census, The Herald reports. This was revealed by Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube who was speaking at the 2022 Population and Housing Census Advocacy and Resource mobilisation breakfast meeting in Harare last week.

Prof Ncube said:

The cost of the 2022 Population and Housing Census is expected to be covered by the Government of Zimbabwe.

However, it is likely that there will be a shortfall over the lifespan of this project, hence the need to mobilise the additional resources required, for the 2022 Population Census project with an estimated cost of about US$85,5 million.

A population census is held once in 10 years in Zimbabwe. UNFPA has already availed funds to Zimstarts to start prepping for the 2022 census.
