    6. 6. Activities foreseen until mid 2012• BHAS DevInfo Expert – tasked to create UN DevInfo database to be hosted on UN web site and help with creation of new information products• Statistician and 2 methodologists engaged to produce final list of 50- 100 ‘core’ municipal socio-economic indicators that will be tracked and collected in all DevInfo municipalities• Development of databases at state and entities level for five agreed sectors (Demography, Education, Foreign trade, Social protection and Gender)• Introduction of DevInfo databases to end users – line ministries• Launch conference (2nd quarter of 2012)• Roll-out of DevInfo and ‘core’ indicators in pilot municipalities
    7. 7. Benefits using diMonitoring Forces users to be pragmatic, practical, concise, exact Ensures that development documents and plans are linked to measurable indicators Tool is straightforward and user friendly If used from the very start of the new UNDAF cycle, could be extremely beneficial Has a potential to be integrated as a standardised tool for UNDAF monitoring globally
    8. 8. Shortcomings of current version of diMonitoring Tool currently does not allow for qualitative/textual indicators to also be monitored – given the nature of UNDAFs, some space for this type of indicators (i.e. Policy developed, capacity increased, etc.) and way of assessing progress of them needs to be envisaged (have values such as completed, not completed, in process, etc.) No space for annual narrative reporting – would be useful if the tool, apart from monitoring, could also be used for reporting Current reporting options/formats poor – unformatted Excel sheets – it would be good to try to have report tables look as close as possible as the screen view in diMonitoring THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION! 
