Monitoring and evaluation has a strategic role to play in informing policy-making processes. The aim is to improve relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of policy reforms. Why then is monitoring and evaluation not playing its role to its full potential? What are the factors, in addition to the evidence, influencing the policy-making process and outcome? How can the uptake of evidence in policy-making be increased?
Country-led monitoring and evaluation systems may enhance evidence-based policy-making by ensuring national monitoring and evaluation systems are owned and led by the concerned countries. This facilitates the availability of evidence relevant to country-specific data needs to monitor policy reforms and national development goals, whilst at the same time, ensuring technical rigour through monitoring and evaluation capacity development.
This conference is part of the program “Meet the Author” where selected authors of evaluation books will be available to respond to your questions. The program was planned together with UNICEF and includes the participation of two major Global Evaluation Networks: IDEAS and IOCE.
The first virtual meeting with the editor of the UNICEF book, “Country-led monitoring and evaluation systems” was held in February 20, 2009, and drew an audience of 110 participants from all over the world. Building on the consensus for the initiative, PAHO, together with UNICEF, designed this program to enable meet the authors of evaluation books, sharing with them good practices and lessons learned on evaluation with a special attention to national and local M&E systems.
