Strategic Planning Workshop Day Three
3
Formulating OutputsTangible, deliverable,
promises
4
Outputs Definition key features
  • Outputs are deliverables
  • Operational changes new skills or abilities, the
    availability of new products and services
  • Must be achieved within the programme period
  • Managers have a high degree of control
  • ? If the result is mostly beyond the control or
    influence of the programme or project, it cannot
    be an output
  • Failure to deliver is failure of the programme or
    project
  • 4 to 6 outputs per agency outcome
  • Unless under a joint programme, outputs are NOT
    collective results

5
  • Measuring Outputs
  • Easier to measure than outcomes (tangible!)
  • Indicators or MOV usually coming from existing
    service data or from routine progress reports
  • Indicators will often be yes-no
  • 1 to 4 indicator enough - the fewer the better to
    reduce costs
  • Promises!
  • (and a critical insurance policy with donors)

6
UNDAF Monitoring Evaluation
7
Monitoring vs. Evaluation
Monitoring Evaluation
Systematic, ongoing During programme implementation Tracking of activities and progress According to AWP For short term corrective action Accountability for implementation Contributes to evaluation Conducted by insiders Are we doing things right? Systematic, periodic During and after programme implementation Judgement of merit, value or worth of a programme/project Compared to evaluation criteria (relevance, effectiveness, impact) For decision-making about future programmes Accountability for results For office organizational learning Conducted by impartial outsiders Did we do the rights things?
8
UNDAF ME
  • ME is key for managing results, but often
    neglected
  • ME plan provides structure
  • a summary of key indicators, sources of
    information (incl. responsibilities) and risks
    assumptions about expected UN system results
  • It enhances UNCT accountability for UNDAF results
  • It requires a final UNDAF evaluation to inform
    subsequent UNDAF process

9
UNDAF ME Plan
  • Consolidates the ME activities related to the
    results expressed in the matrix
  • Improves strategic focus and prioritisation of
    ME activities
  • Coordinates the timing of each activity for
    specific users and uses
  • Reduces duplication and costs of ME efforts and
    enables greater synergies in ME activities
  • Encourages partnerships and continued
    strengthening of national ME capacities

10
Three Elements of the ME Plan
  • 1. Text - How the UNCT will monitor the UNDAF
  • coordination mechanisms (theme groups, joint
    field visits, assessments, and activities with
    partners)
  • Efforts to strengthen national ME capacities  
  • A description of risks and assumptions affecting
    achievement of UNDAF outcomes
  • 2. Table 1 - ME framework
  • Indicators, baseline data, target and sources of
    verification and risks assumptions
  • 3. Table 2- ME calendar
  • At-a-glance management tool, noting all ME
    activities (surveys, studies, assessments,
    reviews, capacity building) by year

UNDAF Evaluation
  • A joint UN assessment of the results of the UNDAF
    which determines
  • 3 key questions
  • Did the UNDAF make the best use of the UNCTs
    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?
  • used to informs next UNDAF

15
Key message
  • We cant know if we are achieving results, as a
    system, unless there is effective monitoring and
    evaluation of the UNDAF, as a system
  • We need
  • A robust and operational ME framework

16
Action Planning
17
Following this meeting the UNCT will focus on
  1. Engaging stakeholders with a combination of
    communication, negotiation and advocacy to gain
    their support for a set of UNDAF outcomes
    (consultation process)
  2. Preparing a first draft results and ME matrix,
    ensuring that agency results are fully aligned
    with and contributing to UNDAF results and
  3. Ratifying the UNDAF with all stakeholders
