Islamabad, Friday 7 September 2012: Multi Donor Trust Fund's (MDTF's) Governance Support Programme (GSP) brought together 45 officials from the Government of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa (KP) and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) Secretariat to share information on the existing Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) country systems, develop a common understanding and agree on a way forward for Post Crisis Needs Assessment (PCNA) results based M & E through country systems. 

 

The workshop is part of a continued effort to strengthen M&E and follows the 19 July, 2012 M&E workshop held in response to a request from KP Chief Minister Ameer Haider Khan Hoti to support the Government in M&E of the PCNA program.

International best practices, results-based management concepts and methodologies were shared by resource persons in interactive sessions where many issues were brought to the fore. MDTF Results Frameworks were also discussed to better acquaint participants with on-going efforts at monitoring the PCNA.

Commenting on the broader impact of this workshop, the Director General of the FATA Directorate of M&E, Mr. Sajjad Mohammad Khan stated, 'This is a very positive development. The interactive and candid discussions with colleagues are valuable not only for M&E of the PCNA but also for Annual Development Plans.' Mohammad Ayaz, Director M&E KP Directorate reiterated this appreciation calling the workshop 'an excellent opportunity for experience sharing and new learning'.

Many viewed this workshop as a unique opportunity to bring together government representatives working on M&E from KP and FATA M&E Directorates and staff of MDTF-supported projects to exchange views and lessons learnt. Among them, was Dr. Shabana Raza, Chief Health Sector Reform, KP who said, 'Bringing together stakeholders from KP and FATA to coordinate and understand M&E systems for PCNA is valuable. Third party validation of data generated by Line Departments is essential for effective monitoring', she added. Mr. Abdul Khaliq, Director M&E FATA (Natural Resource Management) who has extensive field experience, also recognized the value of strengthening M&E, 'We are learning international monitoring practices and hope to implement these across KP and FATA'.

The on-going GSP supports institutional strengthening of Line Departments, including M&E Directorates and PCNA Implementation Support Units in KP and FATA, amongst others. This capacity building initiative will help relevant departments in identification, designing, appraisal and implementation of PCNA recommendations.  It will also capacitate them to develop and implement data collection, communications, and M&E methodologies.
