MONITORING AND EVALUATION ARRANGEMENT
Monitoring and evaluation is an important aspect of the implementation phase of the plan. This is because it helps to track progress of implementation and provides feedback for informed decision-making in reformulation of interventions. The growth and poverty reduction programmes and projects earmarked for implementation in this document would therefore be monitored to ensure project success, both in time of and within budget.
Evaluation would also be carried out to assess the impact of the programmes on poverty reduction and private sector development. The monitoring and evaluation of the programmes and projects would be initiated and coordinated by the Municipal Planning and coordinating Unit (MPCU) in collaboration with the relevant Municipality and community level stakeholders.
Levels of Monitoring and Evaluation
Monitoring is expected to be conducted at the Activity, Outputs and Objectives levels. There shall also be periodic evaluation of the impacts of implemented projects and programmes during the and after the plan period. The responsible agencies are expected to be involved at all levels for a successful implementation.
Medium Term Development Programme Indicators for the Municipality
To ensure that implementing Agencies and departments are result oriented, the formulation of the indicators focused more on output/result and change/impact indicators rather than input/process involved in implementing a particular growth and poverty reduction programme or project.
