Title: Regional Centers for Results Based Management and Evaluation Capacity Development

  • Regional Centers for Results Based Management
    and Evaluation Capacity Development
  • A Multilateral Initiative
  • October 29, 2008


Context The Demand for Evaluation Knowledge is
  • Policy and budget reforms in OECD and developing
  • Decentralization, PRSP monitoring, results-based
  • Transparency and accountability
  • Demand for results and evaluation information
    relevant for public-sector decision-making
  • Paris Declaration
  • Managing for results
  • Mutual accountability
  • Accra Agenda for Action emphasis on use of
    country systems
  • Both underscore the need for in-country
    capacity and systems for monitoring and evaluation

The Need for Evaluation Capacity Support is
  • Partner Countries are expressing the need for a
    range of support in results-based management and
  • Sharing of international experience and country
    examples on approaches to results-based
  • Evaluation knowledge and implications for
    policies and programs
  • Detailed advice on building country evaluation
  • Results monitoring and evaluation skills
  • Financial support for stand-alone monitoring and
    evaluation operations

The Supply of Evaluation Training is Inadequate
  • Current supply is mostly limited to
  • Formal training programs
  • Short-term standard programs
  • Expensive international programs
  • ME network initiatives in regions, but need for
    more support
  • There is demand for
  • In-service and applied programs tailored to
    specific regional and country needs
  • Cost-effective and scaleable options reaching a
    variety of audiences
  • parliaments, public sector agencies, civil
  • Training and knowledge-sharing for practitioners
    and policy-makers
  • Range of training and learning modalities
  • Training of trainers

The Initiative Regional Centers for RBM and
Evaluation Capacity Development
  • Establish a multilateral partnership to
    strengthen the capacity of existing academic or
    training institutions
  • Start with one center (one institution or a
    consortium of institutions) each in Africa, Asia,
    and Latin America
  • Possible expansion within regions and to other
    regions in later years
  • Help regional centers provide demand-based RBM
    and evaluation capacity development services for
  • Generating performance information
  • Using performance information for improved
  • through a variety of customized training and
    advisory activities

Why Independent Evaluation Group?
  • In-depth evaluation knowledge
  • Experience across regions
  • Convening power
  • Mandate for evaluation capacity development

IEG Experience in Evaluation Capacity Development
  • International Program for Development Evaluation
    Training (IPDET, since 2001)
  • Annual four-week program in Canada in
    collaboration with Carleton Univ.
  • Over 1500 participants from more than 100
  • Shanghai International Program for Development
    Evaluation Training (SHIPDET, since 2007)
  • Regional and national program with Asia Pacific
    Finance Center, in collaboration with the Asia
    Development Bank
  • Direct support for country-driven results-based
    management and monitoring and evaluation
  • IPDET on an on-demand, country basis
  • Additional flexible, localized, and customized
    approaches are required to complement these

Benefits of a Regional Approach
  • Relevance
  • Attention to country context and language
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Local services cost less than external services
  • Scaleable
  • Several regional countries/areas participate in
    one center train-the-trainer models
  • Flexible
  • On-going peer-to-peer learning
  • Regional synergies on measuring results
  • Collaboration with initiatives such as
    statistical capacity building, managing for
    development results communities of practice, and
    impact evaluations
  • Donor coordination and reduced fragmentation

Program Modalities and Content
  • Modalities
  • Long- and short-term courses and workshops
  • E-learning tools
  • Targeted technical assistance
  • Peer-learning forums and sharing of experiences
  • Communities of practice
  • Content
  • Technical topics ranging from monitoring to
  • Evaluation findings and applications for policy
    and programs
  • Design and use of results monitoring and
    evaluation systems

Expectations from Various Partners
  • Expectations from host governments and
  • Government (MoF, Planning or Evaluation Agency)
  • Specific demand for evaluation capacity
  • Host institutions regional outreach,
    recognition, and experience
  • Potential to draw participants from neighboring
    countries at low cost
  • Contributions (in-kind and financial) from host
    government and regional centers
  • Expectations from WBG and other development
  • Three to five years of financial support
  • Technical assistance (including sharing
    expertise, experience, and materials from
    existing programs such as IPDET and SHIPDET)
  • Catalytic and brokering role for channeling
  • Advice and co-branding of the training and
    knowledge products

Governance Structure
  • Advisory Board
  • Set broad policy directions and goals of the
  • Steering Committee
  • Set strategy and specific goals
  • Solicit and review proposals from institutions
  • Review work program and commission evaluations
  • Executive Committee
  • Oversee work program implementation
  • Quality assurance
  • Secretariat
  • Day-to-day functioning of the partnership

Funding Strategy
  • Expected funding needs of approximately 7
    million per year
  • 1-2 M per year from 2-3 donors
  • 250 - 500K per year from 3-5 donors
  • 1600K from multilateral partners
  • 825K per year from Banks development grant
    facility (first three years)
  • 600K per year from Bank units
  • In-kind contributions from institutions/host
  • Income from ME services (generated by centers)
  • Total expected funding needs of about 35 million
    for 5 years

Where is the Process Now?
  • Proposal presented at Accra High Level Forum
  • Ongoing discussions with national authorities and
    academic institutions
  • Ongoing discussions with bilateral and
    multilateral agencies
  • Identifying potential partners and options for
    collaboration a preliminary list is ready
  • Apply for the Development Grant Facility in
  • Finalizing key issues
  • Selection of regional centers based on rigorous
  • Funding and operating mechanisms
  • Governance mechanisms
  • Sustainability

We welcome your suggestions Thank you

What the Funds will Accomplish
  • Development of regional expertise
  • Recruitment and training of resident experts
  • Development of curricula
  • Customization of training/knowledge-sharing
  • Managerial training (planning, finance,
    administrative, ME) capacities in the centers
    staff to guarantee sustainability
  • Institutional capacity building (communication
    tools and skills)
  • Development of knowledge products
  • Programs that complement ongoing country- and
    region-based activities conferences,
    knowledge-sharing, etc.
