Welcome to the latest edition of the Pamoja newsletter. After almost two years in the making, we are particularly proud and excited to report that both Benin and Uganda have adapted the Management Performance Assessment Tool (MPAT), with Benin being the first to pilot the Tool. Read more about what we are trying to achieve in the blog below. Kenya completed Diagnostic Study of the Gender Responsiveness of the National Integrated Monitoring and Evaluation System (NIMES). The study was commissioned by the National Treasury and Planning (Ministry) through the Monitoring and Evaluation Directorate with support from Twende Mbele. The results are fairly consistent with other countries who have completed the tool, and we look forward to working with Kenya as they implement the recommendations.
Welcome to our latest edition of the Pamoja newsletter. We are particularly proud and excited to have extended our partnership with the Hewlett Foundation for another two years. This gesture will deepen the scope of peer learning within the partnership, while allowing partner countries to continue strengthening their national evaluation system. In this edition of the Pamoja newsletter, we explore activities undertaken by Twende Mbele in the last quarter. These include our participation in the AfrEA conference and the activities undertaken by our collaborating partner countries.
The importance of strengthening national evaluation systems is gaining traction with more states investing in developing the evaluation capacity of their institutions and systems for improved program delivery. Embedded in that approach, is the development of homegrown evaluation tools to conduct country-driven evaluations to improve overall government efficiency and effectiveness. Mainstreaming gender into evaluation policies and processes and involving national gender machineries should be part of the “modus operandi” of national evaluation systems. A national gender machinery monitors government actions to promote gender equality (Testolin, 2001).
