  1. 1. MENARID Fourth Learning Workshop Presentation by Dr. Lamia Mansour Independent Consultant 18 June 2014, Beirut
  2. 2. Objective of the presentation  Present strategies to support Results Based Management of M&E systems for Integrated Natural Resources Management projects  Identify modalities to maintain the MENARID platform
  3. 3. Structure of the presentation 1. Key principles of Results Based Management 2. Key principles of M&E systems within RBM 3. Status of M&E systems of MENARID projects 4. Brief description of MENARID M&E platform 5. Modalities to maintain MENARID M&E platform
  4. 4. Results-Based Management (RBM)  RBM is a management strategy by which all actors, contributing directly or indirectly to achieving a set of results, ensure that their processes, products and services contribute to the achievement of desired results at the level of the outputs, outcomes and higher level goals or impact. (OECD, 2002).
  5. 5. Results-Based Management (RBM)  In June 2007, the first year of GEF-4, the GEF Council approved a RBM framework. The RBM framework was built on the strategic programming for GEF-4 focal area strategies and their associated indicators
  6. 6. Results-Based Management (RBM) Results Chain in the context of RBM  A results chain links actions and activities implemented by projects to the targets of projects, i.e., their results. The results chain essentially tells us what stakeholders want to achieve, why they want to achieve it and how they will go about it.
  7. 7. The RBM results chain
  8. 8. Results-Based Management (RBM) RBM life-cycle approach  Planning, monitoring and evaluation come together as RBM. RBM is defined as a broad management strategy aimed at achieving improved performance and demonstrable results. This ongoing process of doing, learning and improving. RBM is concerned with learning, risk management and accountability.
  9. 9. RBM life-cycle approach
  10. 10. Results-Based Management (RBM) M&E within the RBM approach  A monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system must be in place that can assess how the project is performing with respect to expected outputs, outcomes and impact
  11. 11. M&E within the RBM : SMART indicators  Specific: Is the indicator specific enough to measure progress towards the results?  Measurable: Is the indicator a reliable and clear measure of results?  Attainable: Are the results in which the indicator seeks to chart progress realistic?  Relevant: Is the indicator relevant to the intended outputs and outcomes?  Time-bound: Are data available at reasonable cost and effort?
  12. 12. M&E within the RBM : An Example Level of Result Indicator Goal/Objective: Sustainable Land Management in Region X Increased vegetation cover Reduction in soil loss Stabilization of groundwater table Outcome: Reduction of land degradation in target Agricultural Areas Increased productivity of agricultural land Output: Good Agricultural Practices are adopted Surface area of land adopting GAP (CA, IPM, drip irrigation)
  13. 13. Status of M&E in MENARID projects Brief overview of MENARID projects:  10 Projects  3 Agencies: IFAD, UNDP, UNEP, WB  3 Countries: Algeria, Iran, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia, Yemen and one Regional project
  14. 14. Status of M&E in MENARID projects Long Duration: August 2008 - December 2018  Most MENARID projects have been initiated between 2008 and 2010, with the exception of two projects which were initiated in 2013  The majority of the MENARID projects will be completed by 2015 for the exception of the 2 late starters which will be will continue till 2018-2019 Multitude of GEF Operational Programmes:  LD, IW, BD1, BD2, ACC
  15. 15. Status of M&E in MENARID projects Project planning, M&E and Reporting 1. Agencies requirements:  AWP, Annual reports and quarterly reports, RIMS (for IFAD) 2. GEF requirements:  Project Implementation Report (PIR)  Tracking Tool: LDTT, IWTT, METT ( BD1), BDTT( BD2), ACCTT
  16. 16. Status of M&E in MENARID projects  Most projects seem to respond to the agencies requirements and are ready to share the agencies annual reports for external review  Most projects have not used the GEF PIRs and Tracking Tools as a basis for M&E and accordingly did not share PIRs and Tracking Tools for external review  In the case of IFAD/MENARID projects, special support was deployed to respond to GEF requirements through integrating Results Indicators in the PIRs and establishing the Tracking Tools (LDTT and IWTT)
  17. 17. Status of M&E in MENARID projects 3. Requirements of the ICARDA-MENARID project for aligned M&E functions  M&E Platform (MENARID GATEWAY)  M&E Matrix developed by ICARDA in close collaboration with the projects and include a list of indicators  On-line M&E platform based on the M&E Matrix  Training activities were conducted to support the use of the M&E platform
  18. 18. M&E Platform (MENARID GATEWAY) Typology of indicators of the M&E Matrix/Platform:  Goal: The economic and social well-being of the targeted communities improved through the promotion of Integrated Natural Resources Management in the MENA region and the restoration of ecosystem functions and productivity  Component 1: Approaches to INRM investments at national and local levels- technical assistance and investments coordinated and harmonized  Component 2.1: Enabling environments for INRM-technical assistance and investments mainstreamed and promoted in climate change  Component 2.2: Enabling environments for INRM-technical assistance and investments mainstreamed and promoted in land degradation  Component 2.3: Enabling environments for INRM-technical assistance and investments mainstreamed and promoted in International Waters  Component 2.4: Enabling environments for INRM-technical assistance and investments mainstreamed and promoted in biodiversity
  19. 19. M&E Platform (MENARID GATEWAY)  Typology of indicators of the M&E Matrix/Platform:  Component 3.1: Investment in Land Degradation- Arid and semi-arid ecosystems integrity restored and livelihoods improved, including increased adaptation to climate change.  Component 3.2: Investment in International Waters- Arid and semi-arid ecosystems integrity restored and livelihoods improved, including increased adaptation to climate change.  Component 3.3: Investment in Biodiversity Arid and semi-arid ecosystems integrity restored and livelihoods improved, including increased adaptation to climate change.  Component 4: Knowledge Management, sharing and up- scaling of best practices fostered
  20. 20. M&E Platform (MENARID GATEWAY) Functions of the M&E Platform: As a project manager  Entering project’s indicators data  Configuration of scheduled reports for a project  Getting a sample report before it is sent off  Adding/Editing dashboard for a project homepage
  21. 21. M&E Platform (MENARID GATEWAY) Functions of the M&E Platform: As an anonymous user  Viewing/analyzing graphical and tabular data on dashboards  Filtering data in user reports where filters are present  Visiting all M&E project pages of related programme where they are shared for public use  Viewing shared M&E documents of related programme where they are shared for public use
  22. 22. M&E Platform (MENARID GATEWAY) How to make best use of the MENARID M&E Platform  Selecting/Adding relevant indicators as needed  Establishing a baseline/target for the indicators  Regular measurement of the indicators  Responding to the Implementing Agencies Requirements: AWP /Regular Reports/ RIMS (IFAD)  Responding to the GEF Requirements for Operational Programmes: PIR / Tracking Tools: LDTT, METT, BD2TT, ACCTT, IWTT
  23. 23. M&E Platform (MENARID GATEWAY) How to make it sustainable??
