Group work on challenges – DS CRP - Learning oriented M&E system -

  1. 1. Group work on challenges – DS CRP - Learning oriented M&E system - From the cards  How to developlearningorientedM&Esystemtoenhance performancesof the CRP  Assessmentof the change  Lack of Quantificationof success/genericresearch  Impact  Learninghowresilience ismeasuredandassessed  Quantitative andfocusedresultsare needed  More infoonbenefits/beneficiariesof new technologies From the flip chart 1. What are the underlying issues in this cluster and your experience? 1. Why dowe needM&E? To achieve outputs,outcomesandimpactthroughtargeting. Toreflect progressacross CRPIDOs,outcomes,cross-cuttingissues. 2. The M&E shouldhave clearobjectivesandaprimaryrole inany interventionundertakenbythe project. 3. To achieve the overall goal (it isrequiredbythe CO) 4. Measurement(Flagshipspecificindicators) 5. Credibility 6. Dissemination 7. Reference/Baseline 8. Frequency 9. Learning.Definitionof L-OM&E. What itis itsrole and components? 10. What isM&E? Are twodistinctprocesses:a) monitoringandb) evaluation.Bothcanbe done fromthe Donorside andfrom the projectsite.The evaluationcanbe internal andexternal. 11. Adequate combinationof qualitativeandquantitative data 12. Supportto Genderanalysisalongthe program 13. Shouldreflectefficiency,effectiveness,relevance,sustainability,andimpact. Priorities from the Group Issues: I. Limitedknowledgeonhowlearningprocessinembeddedinthe M&E II. We don’tknowhowto establishafriendlyreportingstructure
  2. 2. III. We learnmore fromevaluationsince the wayourprojectisstructureddoesnothelptolearn frommonitoring. 2. What do we really want to achieve with a learning oriented M&E system in this CRP? I. Learning& Improvement II. Consolidate lessonslearnt(bestpracticesandfailures) III. Adjustdeviations timely (Identifyconstrainsandhow toadapt the program). IV. Better(logical) planningtoachieve impact 3. How to develop an effective and efficient learning oriented M&E system at regional level and programme level? I. EstablishanM&E knowledge managementtime.Itshouldbe allocatedforeachFP.Thisimplies budgetallocationandmore workloadoncurrentstaff. II. The systemshouldhave itsthree componenthardware,software andorgware. III. M&E shoulddevelopaqualitativemonitoringtobe independent IV. It shouldbe a simple systemtobe used V. It shouldbe developedonthe basisof bilateral projectsreporting VI. it needstobe compatible withotherdonor/CRPreporting; the CRPs/Centersneedtopushthe consortiumtodo somethingaboutitsince we cannothave differentandconstant reporting. VII. It shouldcapture qualityinfothroughinformal communications (face toface,phone,skype…) VIII. Specifictailoredtrainingsshouldbe providedatdifferentlevel of CRPDSdoers/practitioners combinedwithtrainingonresult-orientedresearch (design,implementationandM&E) 4. What needs to change in the CRP to enable learning and adaptation in a rigorous manner? I. More structure personal contacts II. Change inmindsetof CRP DS III. Willingnesstoshare knowledge,informationanddata IV. ShiftingmindsetfromcenterfocustoCRP V. Focal pointcoordinatorshouldhave control overthe funds/budgets VI. M&E teamsacross CRPs VII.
