Results approaches of development co-operation providers

  1. 1. Results approaches of development co-operation providers: successes and challenges Rosie Zwart, Development Co-operation Directorate, OECD 14 December 2017
  2. 2. 1. Corporate level RBM systems: structure and use 2. Differing approaches of development co- operation providers 3. Recommendations for building RBM systems 4. What next: Agenda 2030 as a basis for RBM approaches Outline
  3. 3. How corporate results frameworks are organised
  4. 4. • Providers and partners have varying approaches, but face similar RBM challenges and can share good practice • Key finding: development co-operation results need to be fully linked to development results Challenges and good practice: findings from OECD case studies
  5. 5. A comparison of results approaches….
  6. 6. •Align to and address development goals and desired change •Link the contribution of development co-operation results to development results •Avoid reporting development co-operation results in isolation 1. Goals: linking goals to results and building narratives •Develop a results approach that supports how development co- operation is delivered •Communicate the why, what and how of approaches to results- based management via a strategy •Build external evaluation and/or review of RBM into the approach 2. Purpose: ensuring RBM approaches are fit- for-purpose •If attribution of results to donor funding is essential – focus on a small number of output indicators •Limit use of aggregated targets •Harmonise standard indicators among providers wherever possible 3. Attribution: being realistic about attributing and aggregating results Recommendations (1)….
  7. 7. •Invest in and use partner results information •Use the SDGs as a common framework for country-level results-based management •Build dialogue and feedback loops into results processes at all levels 4. Ownership: enabling country ownership of results information •Distinguish clearly between organisational performance, development co-operation results, and development results •Use performance information to provide insights on rather than replace results information 5. Performance: linking results and performance to inform delivery •Enhance incentives for RBM for all staff and partners •Avoid proliferation of parallel data systems •Embed results expertise in the field •Build bridges between results and evaluation 6. Culture: enhancing resources to build a learning culture Recommendations (2)….
  8. 8. The 2030 Agenda is a shared framework for providers and partners in development co-operation. With its 17 goals, 169 targets, 232 indicators and given deadlines (mostly 2030), the 2030 Agenda serves as a global and country- level results framework for sustainable development results, to which development co-operation contributes. The 2030 Agenda as a basis for RBM
  9. 9. • SDG data are available for countries and globally on the progress on SDG targets as development results (to varying degrees) • Data contributes to all three tiers of results frameworks • Less need for donor-specific data collection for results frameworks and for M&E • Most importantly: A common, evidence-based platform for dialogue with partners on development results and change • Goes beyond but complements ‘SDG mapping’ Importantly: SDG results can not be attributed – but we can demonstrate the contribution of development co-operation results to achievement of SDG results Benefits to using 2030 Agenda as a basis for RBM
  10. 10. Strong links to the SDGs exist already… example from water sector Goal 6. Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all SDG Target 6.1. By 2030, achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all. SDG Indicator(s) 6.1.1. Proportion of population using safely managed drinking water service Provider standard indicator Tier one Tier two European Commission Proportion of the population using an improved drinking water source - Finland N/A The number of people benefiting from safe and sustainable water supply and sanitation systems. Netherlands N/A Number of people with access to safe and affordable drinking water New Zealand Population using a safely managed drinking water sources (%) People provided new or improved water supply (No.,M/F) Switzerland- SDC N/A yy water related policies, laws, strategies and plans developed at national level yy people (M/F) gained new access to safe and affordable drinking water United Kingdom N/A Number of people with sustainable access to clean water and/or sanitation through DFID support The World Bank Group Access to safe water within a household (percent, bottom 40%/ gap to average) People provided with access to an improved water source (millions) AsDB Population using an improved drinking water source (%) (urban/ rural) Households with new or improved water supply
  11. 11. Provider results framework tier Examples of indicators Tier 1: development results 6.1.1. Proportion of population using safely managed drinking water service – by country/region Tier 2: development co-operation results Example provider standard indicator: Number of people with sustainable access to clean water (m/f + other relevant disaggregation) (Subset of data at Tier 1 - in relevant regions, countries, districts where provider is delivering support) Tier 3: performance information 6.a.1. Amount of water and sanitation-related official development assistance that is part of a government co-ordinated spending plan – by country, and for provider as a whole A more co-ordinated approach…. (water example)
  12. 12. • Ensure development co-operation results are linked to development results via goals and narratives • Invest in and use country results information – avoid duplication and ‘flag-planting’ (the SDGs provide a basis for this) • Incentivise use of results information at all levels in support of development outcomes on the ground Key messages for RBM
  13. 13. The results agenda is a work in progress for DAC members and there is no one size fits all approach – it is important to share practice between and among providers, partners and other stakeholders. Thank You! And finally…..
