Step 4 monitoring and evaluation

Step 4: Monitoring and Evaluation

Tracking UNDAF Results


Mandatory steps

2

Mandatory Steps

1. Road Map

3. Strategic Planning


Monitoring and evaluation are distinct and required

Monitoring and Evaluation are distinct and required

1. Road Map

  • Monitoring

  • Tracks progress towards results agreed in matrix

  • Checks if assumptions & risks are still valid

  • Helps UNCT & partners to make mid-course corrections

  • Integral part of programme management

  • Evaluation

  • Determines whether results made worthwhile contribution to national development priorities

  • Makes essential contribution to managing for results

  • Is an external function separate from programme management

  • Helps UNCT & partners to make mid-course corrections

M&E Plan

4. M&E

1. Road Map

  • Designed at the same time with & based on results matrix

  • Provides operational detail about inter-agency mechanism and processes for monitoring UNDAF performance and reporting

  • Data for the results indicators drawn from national systems. If data not available, baseline studies can be supported

  • The M&E Plan may be reflected in a table or in the narrative of the UNDAF document


Elements of m e

Elementsof M&E

4. M&E

1. Road Map

  • Develop the mandatory M&E Plan

  • Conduct the mandatory UNDAF annual review process with Government

  • Produce a single UNDAF progress report per cycle

  • Conduct evaluation of the UNDAF


Background

Background

Essential for assessing progress along the results chain

Ability to demonstrate, report on and communicate results important for attracting financial resources

How well one is able to monitor and evaluate UNDAF is a function of how well it is designed, the availability of human and institutional capacity in-country and the availability of adequate tools and systems

Undaf annual review

UNDAF Annual Review

11

4. M&E

1. Road Map

  • Required annually & has to be documented

  • Aligned with national reviews as far as possible

  • Provides evidence from monitoring mechanisms

  • Provides lessons learned and good practices

  • Identifies possible constraints & challenges

  • Provides opportunities for government & stakeholders to lead the process


Undaf progress report

UNDAF Progress Report

12

4. M&E

1. Road Map

  • Required once per cycle

  • Reports how outputs produced by UN contribute towards progress in achieving outcomes in UNDAF Results Matrix

  • Detailed guidance, template and examples available in Standard Operational Format & Guidance for Reporting Progress on the UNDAF

Undaf evaluation

UNDAF Evaluation

4. M&E

1. Road Map

  • Determines whether results made a worthwhile contribution to national development priorities

  • 3 key questions:

    • Did the UNDAF make the best use of the UNCT’s comparative advantages in the country?

    • Did the UNDAF generate a coherent UNCT response to national priorities?

    • Did the UNDAF help achieve the selected priorities in the national development framework?


Performance indicators

PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Impact

  • Performance indicators:

  • are measures that show results relative to what was planned at each level of the "results chain".

Outcome

Output

  • are tools for performance-based decisions about programme strategies and activities.

  • can also be used later as an input to evaluating project/programme success.

Process

Input


Indicators types

INDICATORS: TYPES

Indicators exist in many different forms:

  • Direct indicators correspond precisely to results at any performance level.

  • Indirect or "proxy" indicators demonstrate the change or results if direct measures are not feasible.

Direct

Indirect / proxy

  • Indicators are usually quantitative measures, expressed as percentage or share, as a rate, as a ratio.

  • Indicators may also be qualitative observations.

Qualitative

Quantitative

Global / standardised

  • Standardised global indicators are comparable in all settings.

  • Other indicators tend to be context specific and must be developed locally.

Locally developed


Performance indicators1

PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Impact

Impact

Measure the quality and quantity of long-term results generated by programme outputs.

Measure the intermediate results generated by programme outputs. They often correspond to any change in people’s behaviour as a result of programme.

Outcome

Outcome

Measure the quantity, quality and timeliness of the products — goods or services — that are the result of an activity/project/programme.

Output

Output

Measure the progress of activities in a programme/project and the way these are carried out .

Process

Process

Input

Input

Measure the quantity, quality and timeliness of resources provided for an activity/project/programme.


Example

Impact

Impact

Reduction in morbidity and mortality

Proportion of target population who meet prescribed standards of behaviour

Outcome

Outcome

Number whose behaviour change

Output

Output

Number whose opinions change

Number who learn the facts

Number who read the literature

Process

Number of people who receive the literature

Input

Amount of literature distributed

Number of pieces of literature available for distribution


Issues to keep in mind

Issues to keep in mind

Validity – does it measure the result

Reliability – is it a consistent measure and will data be available over time

Sensitivity – When a change occurs will it be captured by the indicator

Simplicity – will it be easy to collect the information

Affordability – can we afford to collect the necessary information
