    1. 1. Update on monitoring and evaluationand impact assessment component 3.3 Nancy Johnson (ILRI) CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish Planning Meeting ILRI Nairobi 28 September 2011
    2. 2. Improved design and delivery of program interventions with valuechain actorsObjective: The objective of this subcomponent is to develop a robust set ofmonitoring, evaluation, impact assessment and learning mechanisms that willserve multiple functionsa) maximizing the probability of achieving intended impact among targetbeneficiaries, including women and vulnerable groups,b) documenting the level and manner of that impact, and the outcomes thatbrought it about,c) understanding and supporting the processes of innovation and research todevelopment, to improve the performance of the program and its partners,d) supporting the internal M&E, planning and decision functions, and thecommunication strategy of the Program to continually ensure efficiency,accountability and relevance.
    3. 3. Activities• Activity 1: Development of a monitoring and evaluation framework and appropriate tools at program and value chain level• Activity 2: Process monitoring to improve learning during project implementation• Activity 3: Assessing outcomes and behavioural change among value chain actors• Activity 4: Analysis of household and community outcomes and impact• Activity 5: Implementation and link to other learning and M&E elements

    8. 8. Priorities for Resource Mobilization (1) Funds for harmonized qualitative and quantitative baseline studies across all proposed value chains /countries Funds for centre and partner meetings to develop detailed monitoring and evaluation plan for the CRP Funds for implementation of process monitoring and evaluation across value chains, design of panel data set and design of M&E data base system
    9. 9. 2012 Priorities for Organisational, Capacity Development and Communication Activities Restructure team to match CRP needs Identify gaps for priority recruitment and partnership Identify strategy and mechanisms for working links internally with other CRP3.7 components, and externally Dissemination of harmonized framework and tools for gender and livelihoods, value chain performance to partners Work with partners to develop process monitoring tools for continuous monitoring, evaluation and improvement during project implementation
