Innover dans le suivi et l’évaluation pour mieux répondre aux besoins des décideurs au niveau national

logo gLOCALLes systèmes de suivi et d'évaluation ont l'objectif de fournir une réponse et aider à prendre des décisions éclairées sur la base d'éléments probants: toutefois nous assistons souvent à un décalage entre les résultats et les données fournis par le suivi et l’évaluation et la prise de décisions, qui est plus profond pour l’évaluation, confrontée à la contrainte de temps, pour son adaptation à temps réelle au cycle politique et aux besoins de réponses rapides.

Que peut-on faire pour remédier à cela et pour renforcer la complémentarité effective entre le suivi et l’évaluation pour la prise de décisions sur la base d’expériences et évidences avérées?

En s’appuyant sur l’expérience dans quatre pays, notamment le Bénin, le Maroc, la Tunisie et le Sénégal, ce panel va explorer les approches innovantes et les changements qui peuvent attirer et maintenir l'intérêt d'un plus grand nombre de parties prenantes pour le suivi et l'évaluation, pour s’adapter aux besoins des décideurs en termes de temps, de format et de modalités de communication.

Le panel, modéré par le bureau de l’évaluation indépendante du FIDA, sera composé de représentants de haut niveau dans leurs administrations respectives avec un rôle à l’interface entre les institutions en charge du S&E et les décideurs gouvernementaux. Cela permettra aux participants d’avoir une meilleure compréhension et appréciation des innovations expérimentées, ainsi que les contraintes vécues dans différents contextes nationaux.

Using stories in evaluation: Participatory Narrative Inquiry and Sensemaking

photo

gLOCAL logoSensemaking and Participatory Narrative Inquiry (PNI) are similar approaches, based on collecting stories about a real life experience from a large number of stakeholders on a topic of interest to the evaluation, and giving the storytellers themselves the responsibility for analyzing and making sense of the stories. Because a large number of stories are collected and self-interpreted, it is possible to conduct quantitative analysis of recurrent themes, perspectives and feelings emerging in the narratives. By combining elements of qualitative and quantitative research, these approaches help to make sense of complex and evolving realities.

This session will explain the general approach of Sensemaking and PNI and panelists will discuss their experiences with this method, recently used in IFAD and WFP’s evaluations. Participants will be invited to ask questions and to share their own experiences with using stories in evaluation and will learn more on how to use stories and participatory Sensemaking in evaluation.

This panel discussion convened by EvalForward and EvalPartners aims to continue the momentum already gained for country-led evaluation of the SDGs.

The panellists will explore the evolution of National Evaluation Capacity Development (NECD) and country-led evaluation since the 2014 Resolution based on a recent UNEG report. They will share lessons and perspectives on the Evaluation of SDG 2 from FAO; highlight WFP experience on how engaging in joint evaluation work with the Governments of Eswatini, Lesotho, Namibia, Benin and Kenya could build capacity for country-led evaluation; and learn from the Government of Uganda how M&E systems have evolved in the country. The panel also discusses how a possible new UN General Assembly resolution could scale up Country-led Evaluations of the SDGs in the coming years.

EvalForward Talks at the gLOCAL: a round of innovations in M&E communication, engagement and tools from the community

gLOCAL logoIn this informal knowledge sharing session, members of the EvalForward Community of Practice will share innovative approaches in their M&E work, and discuss how these can be up scaled in different contexts, in order to improve, renew and strengthen M&E.

Two experiences will open the session: one linked to the “Markets for a Sustainable Future” initiative by the Rainforest Alliance in South Mexico, supporting entrepreneurial capacities of small cooperatives, which used a set of tools to regularly diagnose and monitor their capacities; the other one will focus on innovative ways to communicate M&E and Evaluation findings during the process, including diaries/blogs, drawings, recordings to share findings and stories in new and unusual ways. 

Members of EvalForward will be invited to present their innovation and join the discussion which will be facilitated in an open and informal manner, as in the EvalForward Talks series.
