Establish a Monitoring and Evaluation (M and E) monitoring system for ISTVS
A visit was made to ISTVS by the IGAD M and E experts from the 15th to the 17th February 2016. The purpose of the visit was to introduce ISTVS to the Result Based Monitoring and Evaluation (RBM&E) framework which has been adopted by other IGAD institutions. The RBM&E framework forms an integral part of the management of ISTVS to enhance efficiency and effectiveness. Information and data derived from this process will enable the implementers to establish the extent to which the implemented activities and associated results have met the set timeframes, using allocated resources and achieved the set targets. In addition, the RBM&E will:
- be a useful tool in helping identify challenges and emerging trends while giving the Governing Council and stake-holders time to assess results and initiate action where necessary.
- Ensure that investments/inputs towards the management of ISTVS are accompanied with effective and efficient management; transparency and accountability – which will translate to better livelihood outcomes.
The Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) framework aims to focus the attention of ISTVS partners and stakeholders on, and guide their efforts towards, the ultimate goal of ISTVS which is geared towards the provision of technical and professional personnel and to facilitate IGAD regional networking to strengthen resilience and upgrade pastoral and agro-pastoral communities’ livelihoods thereby releasing the full potential of the IGAD arid and semi-arid lands
