    2. 2. Items  Motivation: accountability, effectiveness, scaling up / down  Current status  Data landscape  Specific challenges  Looking forward
    3. 3. At start-up  Existing M&E plan not operationalized  No networks of information sharing for the purposes of monitoring  No data sharing protocols  Best description: nascent
    4. 4. AR: Data landscape  Administrative data  Surveys: questionnaires, raw and enhanced datasets, metadata  Household-level surveys  Community-level surveys     Publications: working papers, journal articles Training events Demonstration days Progress reports  Interim  End-year  Feed The Future indicator reporting  Event presentations
    5. 5. Challenges       Work-package structure Lack of integration Establishing trust M&E a shared responsibility Communication & responsiveness Example: FtF reporting, Aug-Nov 2013  Outreach: multiple, diverse  Indicators: eight (hectares, households, partnerships, technologies); type and gender disaggregations  Research proposal element
    6. 6. Looking forward: ARMEIS  Seamless collection / collation of data  Archiving & storing data, and making it available  IT / PMT  Sharing research ideas and results cross-program (intra- and inter-)  Analyzing the data  Descriptive analysis: baseline and follow-up characterizations  Causal analysis:  Is AR effective, on average or within specific sub-populations?  Which components? And what combinations?  Disseminating results  Main condition: Effective partnerships and researcher buy-in
