Building country M&E capacity to manage for and report on results - Nigel Brett Building country M&E capacity to manage for and report on results - Nigel Brett Presentation Transcript

  •  Annual performance review  WORKSHOP 1-4 March 2009 Bangkok, Thailand
  • Building country M&E capacity to manage for and report on results
    • The problem: Reporting results
    • Projects generally report on activities and outputs, BUT did not generate evidence of achievement of objectives - RESULTS.
    • Without this evidence IFAD and Government have to assume that outputs have resulted in objectives, supported by anecdotes from individual interviews.
    • Development partners said they knew little of what IFAD is doing and what its projects achieve.
  • The Bangladesh response
    • IFAD’s programme in Bangladesh has generated project outcomes and impact. This has been measured by:
    • Sample surveys on project impact: three final surveys, two mid-term surveys, three baseline reports.
    • Case studies to illustrate impact on individual participants
    • Project reporting of data on micro-credit, fisheries, etc.
    • Knowledge Attitude Practice surveys on effective of training
    • Dissemination of results via country newsletters.
  • Example of impact reporting in COSOP MTR
  • Example of impact reporting – COSOP MTR
  • Example of impact reporting – COSOP MTR
  • What is needed to enable effective project M&E? Part A - Planning
    • Planning the project:
    • M&E system design as an annex in IFAD Design Document
    • M&E unit: independent unit within or attached to PMU with own staff down to field level, transport, computers etc.
  • What is needed to enable effective project M&E? Part B – Implementation Support
    • Implementation support: M&E specialists give hands-on support:
    • Plan and advise on M&E at project start-up or at MTR,
    • ToR for surveys and studies
    • Train M&E and other field data collection staff,
    • KAP training surveys
    • Writeshop (through ENRAP) to build capacity for case studies.
    • Review draft survey reports and interpret survey results.
  • What is needed to enable effective project M&E? Part C – IFAD missions
    • Supervision missions:
    • Pay specific attention to performance of project M&E.
    • Prior to mission, project sent blank tables for data on specific performance areas, such as micro-credit.
    •  
    • Design and completion missions:
    • Commission studies using participatory tools which require expert facilitation.
  • Examples of blank tables
  • Examples of blank tables
  • Examples of blank tables
  • What is needed to enable effective project M&E? Part D - Dissemination
    • Country Newsletters in English (two per year for last 3 years):
    • Target audience: donors, government, NGOs, consultants, academics.
    • Primarily distributed in electronic format, also printed
    • Country Newsletters in Bangla – planned to produce two per year
    • Target audience: field staff of project, partner agencies, local authorities, communities and other stakeholders.
    • Contents – more news focused than English edition
    • Distributed as a printed version
  • Key messages to take home
    • M&E is difficult and complicated, but it is not impossible.
    • Pick one approach and stick to it - same M&E design, costs and approach for all projects in the country programme;
    • Stick to it for the long term - application of exactly the same approach for many years;
    • Use the same M&E support team for all projects for the long term (consistent messages, and relationship building);
    • Apply sufficient and regular annual IFAD M&E implementation support budget for each project (40 consultant days per project; total budget of approx USD 36,000 per project or USD 6000/year);
    • Invest in the M&E field officers.. Make sure they have the required equipment, transport and training..
    • Ensure you send the same empty data tables to all projects prior to supervision missions for compilation.
    • Ensure one of the M&E support team on each supervision mission.
