    • Our Strategy To Support Results in West and Central Africa Regional IFAD Project Implementation Workshop Accra, Ghana 1 to 4 December 2009
    • We are on a “journey without maps”
      • We think we know where we want to go, but are not sure how to get there.
    • Translated to our work…
      • Results Management Framework: Based on experience, our best guess of the direction to take
      • Innovation: Along the way we have to adjust to the realities we encounter in the field
      • M&E: How we decide if we are moving forward or going around in circles
      • Knowledge Management: Accelerated learning so we can progress more rapidly
    • Our results strategy must support teams to:
      • Formulate best possible COSOPs and projects to start well
      • Design projects to allow constant innovation to respond to realities in implementation
      • Ensure that M&E is useful
      • Learn from each others’ experience
    • New RB-COSOPs and projects are carefully “setting the course”
      • Capture contributions of existing projects (Congo, Nigeria)
      • Reflect adjustment in direction (Ghana CDD to Value Chains)
      • Identify emerging issues to explore (climate adaptation)
      • Decide issues better addressed by others (land tenure, trade)
      • Emphasize policy areas we can influence with our experience
    • Innovation: Do we hear the tree falling in the forest?
      • Innovation needs to happen from villager to project to CPM
      • We need to assess how well standard project design supports innovation
      • Some projects (i.e.: Niger) are designed to support innovation
      • Balancing need for fiduciary integrity with flexibility to adjust to local reality
    • In M&E, we need to make sure that “the tail does not wag the dog”
      • Move away from complicated and expensive MIS systems
      • Focus on efficient and useful AWPB and reports on inputs and outputs
      • Try different approaches to level 2/results monitoring
      • Combine indicators across projects and link to country priorities (i.e.: Mali, Benin)
      • Baseline studies as input to formulation (Congo, Mauritania)
    • Major KM challenge is to learn more from each other
      • Workshops build larger regional community of practice
      • Increase share of FIDAfrique knowledge coming from users
      • Better linkage of regional grants to CPMTs/projects
      • Systematic communication of lessons from our work to influence policy/programs (i.e. Sierra Leone, FIDAction)
    • Our commitment: Provide CPMTs with the support you need for a successful journey towards rural poverty reduction in West and Central Africa
