Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) of Africa RISING: What did we learn in 2014?

  1. 1. Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) of Africa RISING What did we learn in 2014? Beliyou Haile, IFPRI Africa RISING Learning Event, Arusha, Tanzania, 11-12 November 2014
  2. 2. Lessons learned – Monitoring (M)  Resources for M  Limited (human) resources…overworked  Interruptions in staff…survey residents  Compiling/aggregating FtF indicators data through PMMT  Insufficient PMMT training…more trainings  Poor internet connectivity…offline data entry  Internet connectivity but missing/incomplete data…we need your help! 2
  3. 3. Lessons learned – Monitoring (M)  Customs and sustainability indicators  Custom…is your project monitoring some of them? Which ones?  SI…discussions are ongoing  The PMMT is ready to accommodate such indicators 3
  4. 4. Lessons learned – Evaluation (E)  Baseline evaluation surveys  Tradeoff between survey content, timing, local capacity, data quality, survey cost…  Lots of capacity building (content, CAPI, survey planning and implementation)  Further adaptation of the survey tool (post Malawi)  Employed more resources than expected 4
  5. 5. Lessons learned – Evaluation (E)  Baseline evaluation surveys  Survey sample composition: AR beneficiaries, non-beneficiaries in AR sites, and control  Count of AR beneficiaries (individuals vs. households)  Household listing and verification(e.g., wife takes last name of spouse as first name)  Given the random selection of non-beneficiaries in AR action sites, need to purge AR beneficiaries from full list of farmers 5
  6. 6. Lessons learned – Evaluation (E)  Baseline evaluation surveys  Had to move onto the ‘next survey’ quickly (unable to clean, document, etc.)…‘some’ time in between surveys  Data for all AR countries are ready to be used, just ask us 6
