Monitoring and review process lessons learned
Monitoring and review process – lessons learned

  • AWPs represent a mutual GoA – UN commitment and require signature by UN agencies and implementing partners.

  • Realistic planning in AWPs based on available budgets. Format has been improved in order to better prioritize activities and achieve the expected results.

  • Indicators need to be improved. Still a needed to ensure that indicators are fully tracing the progress related to UN support and fully ‘measurable’.

  • Continuous need for improving Harmonised procedures/ guidelines regarding monitoring, measurement and reporting. Including the CF allocation procedures which are based on agency performance.

Important processes for improving RBM System and insure Accountability:

  • The principle of tripartite partnership is important for seeking support, plan, monitor and insure mutual accountability.

  • Simplification, streamlining and harmonisation of RBM and Reporting within UNCT

  • UN Country Programereporting format may not replace agency-specific results reporting requirements.

  • Indicators and MoVneed to be further aligned and improved (both for UN Programme and Government)


Challenges
Challenges possible for women to register their properties and enjoy their property rights, equally with men

  • Mind-set from project approach to results-based sector approach

  • Delivering results by implementing available resources is the key to attracting more resources;

  • Financial reporting (financial administrative systems differ between UN agencies)

  • Data management- Data collection, analysis, management, and dissemination underpin the measurement of progress towards expected results.
