Review Of Km And Learning From Ds1

  1. 1. Review of Knowledge and Learning from Direct Supervision Asia and the Pacific Division
  2. 2. Guiding questions: how much and what is PI learning from Direct Supervision? <ul><li>The KM Appendix: learning about rural poverty reduction </li></ul><ul><li>Learning about project-level KM </li></ul><ul><li>Learning about the Direct Supervision (DS) process </li></ul>
  3. 3. Learning about rural poverty reduction: the KM Appendix <ul><li>50% of the reports contained a KM Appendix </li></ul><ul><li>Five look at project management </li></ul><ul><li>The rest focus on more technical issues: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Strengthening of social capital (esp. IP) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Targeting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Microfinance </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Lessons learnt recorded in the text (FFS, gender, graduation of COs) </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>PI is learning from its projects but not as much as it could </li></ul><ul><li>Quality of lessons recorded in KM Appendix </li></ul><ul><li>‘Missed’ or ‘hidden’ lessons: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Grassroots institutions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Role of NGOs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Support to IP </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Gender </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project management issues </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Constraints towards learning <ul><li>Lesson learning is not a priority for the SM </li></ul><ul><li>Notion of learning/KM is not clear </li></ul><ul><li>The audience of the lessons is not clear </li></ul><ul><li>Not enough time/resources </li></ul><ul><li>SM not the right “tool” for learning </li></ul><ul><li>Yet… the Supervision Report is also “an important tool in learning and knowledge management” (IFAD’s SV guidelines) </li></ul>
  6. 6. Learning about project-level KM <ul><li>Reporting on this topic has not been a priority </li></ul><ul><li>Many reports focus on giving recommendations on how to improve KM systems </li></ul><ul><li>Overall weak KM systems, but improving: they will feed into future lesson learning… </li></ul>
  7. 7. Learning about the DS process <ul><li>Only one report records lessons on the DS process </li></ul><ul><li>Friday meetings: they are generally considered very useful </li></ul><ul><li>They risk “staying on the shelf”: need to systematize lessons, share them and make decisions on priorities and follow-up. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Suggestions for improvement <ul><li>Ensure that the learning role of the SM is clear </li></ul><ul><li>Give better guidance in the KM Appendix </li></ul><ul><li>Reflect collectively- AARs… </li></ul><ul><li>Give more time to SM preparation </li></ul><ul><li>Organize learning events </li></ul><ul><li>Streamline the standard template and IFAD’s SM Guidelines </li></ul>
