Expected results background
Expected results: background November 2006

  • Framework: country strategy Swedish – Vietnamese development co-operation 2004 – 2008

Expected results: k November 2006ey questions

  • Identify a set of relevant rights in each area as given in the international standards on human rights

  • Suggest measurable quantitative/ qualitative indicators in relation to these sets of rights,

  • Assess progress in each sector and identify contribution to progress of Swedish development co-operation.


Practice process
Practice: process November 2006

  • Inputs from experts on key questions (rights sets, indicators)

  • Joint Swedish – Vietnamese working groups for each sector to develop indicators

  • Three sectoral assessments on the basis of indicators

  • One synthesis report


Practice challenges
Practice: challenges November 2006

  • Identification of sets of rights: rights and development conceptual incongruence?

  • Operationalisation of measurable RBA related indicators: what are key issues to measure?

  • Measuring: data and baselines available?



Operationalisation of indicators
Operationalisation of indicators November 2006

  • Content and political will: standards and policy

  • Target groups: vulnerable groups and non-discrimination

  • Participation and transparency: process

  • Enforcement: remedies and redress


Preliminary results
Preliminary results November 2006

  • Exercise more complicated than expected: translation of development goals into sets of rights, covering all elements of obligations, etc.

  • Indicators worked for assessment of achievements in sectors, but evidence shows large gaps: no baseline, no data

  • Attribution difficult, also in view of conflicting trends in donor policies: wish for attribution, at the same time donor consortia, focus on large programs

  • Joint ownership of process in crucial to address above points.
