  • Building country M&E capacity to manage for and report on results - Nigel Brett

    1. 1.  Annual performance review  WORKSHOP 1-4 March 2009 Bangkok, Thailand
    2. 2. Building country M&E capacity to manage for and report on results <ul><li>The problem: Reporting results </li></ul><ul><li>Projects generally report on activities and outputs, BUT did not generate evidence of achievement of objectives - RESULTS. </li></ul><ul><li>Without this evidence IFAD and Government have to assume that outputs have resulted in objectives, supported by anecdotes from individual interviews. </li></ul><ul><li>Development partners said they knew little of what IFAD is doing and what its projects achieve. </li></ul>
    3. 3. The Bangladesh response <ul><li>IFAD’s programme in Bangladesh has generated project outcomes and impact. This has been measured by: </li></ul><ul><li>Sample surveys on project impact: three final surveys, two mid-term surveys, three baseline reports. </li></ul><ul><li>Case studies to illustrate impact on individual participants </li></ul><ul><li>Project reporting of data on micro-credit, fisheries, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge Attitude Practice surveys on effective of training </li></ul><ul><li>Dissemination of results via country newsletters. </li></ul>
    4. 4. Example of impact reporting in COSOP MTR
    5. 5. Example of impact reporting – COSOP MTR
    6. 6. Example of impact reporting – COSOP MTR
    7. 7. What is needed to enable effective project M&E? Part A - Planning <ul><li>Planning the project: </li></ul><ul><li>M&E system design as an annex in IFAD Design Document </li></ul><ul><li>M&E unit: independent unit within or attached to PMU with own staff down to field level, transport, computers etc. </li></ul>
    8. 8. What is needed to enable effective project M&E? Part B – Implementation Support <ul><li>Implementation support: M&E specialists give hands-on support: </li></ul><ul><li>Plan and advise on M&E at project start-up or at MTR, </li></ul><ul><li>ToR for surveys and studies </li></ul><ul><li>Train M&E and other field data collection staff, </li></ul><ul><li>KAP training surveys </li></ul><ul><li>Writeshop (through ENRAP) to build capacity for case studies. </li></ul><ul><li>Review draft survey reports and interpret survey results. </li></ul>
    9. 9. What is needed to enable effective project M&E? Part C – IFAD missions <ul><li>Supervision missions: </li></ul><ul><li>Pay specific attention to performance of project M&E. </li></ul><ul><li>Prior to mission, project sent blank tables for data on specific performance areas, such as micro-credit. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Design and completion missions: </li></ul><ul><li>Commission studies using participatory tools which require expert facilitation. </li></ul>
    10. 10. Examples of blank tables
    11. 11. Examples of blank tables
    12. 12. Examples of blank tables
    13. 13. What is needed to enable effective project M&E? Part D - Dissemination <ul><li>Country Newsletters in English (two per year for last 3 years): </li></ul><ul><li>Target audience: donors, government, NGOs, consultants, academics. </li></ul><ul><li>Primarily distributed in electronic format, also printed </li></ul><ul><li>Country Newsletters in Bangla – planned to produce two per year </li></ul><ul><li>Target audience: field staff of project, partner agencies, local authorities, communities and other stakeholders. </li></ul><ul><li>Contents – more news focused than English edition </li></ul><ul><li>Distributed as a printed version </li></ul>
    14. 14. Key messages to take home <ul><li>M&E is difficult and complicated, but it is not impossible. </li></ul><ul><li>Pick one approach and stick to it - same M&E design, costs and approach for all projects in the country programme; </li></ul><ul><li>Stick to it for the long term - application of exactly the same approach for many years; </li></ul><ul><li>Use the same M&E support team for all projects for the long term (consistent messages, and relationship building); </li></ul><ul><li>Apply sufficient and regular annual IFAD M&E implementation support budget for each project (40 consultant days per project; total budget of approx USD 36,000 per project or USD 6000/year); </li></ul><ul><li>Invest in the M&E field officers.. Make sure they have the required equipment, transport and training.. </li></ul><ul><li>Ensure you send the same empty data tables to all projects prior to supervision missions for compilation. </li></ul><ul><li>Ensure one of the M&E support team on each supervision mission. </li></ul>
