Towards enhancing capacities on monitoring and evaluation of programs and projects in the region, NRO-X’s technical staff undertook a three-day Results-based Monitoring and Evaluation (RbME) Retooling Workshop on May 19-21, 2014. This is to update/retool the participants on the policy framework, concepts, principles and methodologies of Results-based Monitoring and Evaluation; cascade the same to the local levels; and sustain RbME operations in the region.
RbME is a development management tool and technique in determining the feasibility of a project and in measuring project results. It provides a set of performance indicators that provides measurement of project success in terms of pre-defined project outcomes and impact.
Resource persons included Director Roderick M. Planta of the NEDA Monitoring and Evaluation Staff (MES); ARD Fe D. Domingo; and NRO-X’s staff led by Engr. Jaime H. Pacampara.
Topics covered were the following: (1) Policy Framework, Public Sector Reform Review and Current Emphasis on Results Orientation; (2) National-Sectoral and Regional Development Framework: Cascading; (3) Preparatory Analytical Tools and the Important Steps/Concepts (including the formulation of the Logical Framework); (4) an overview on Ex-Post Evaluation; (5) Review on the Results Chain Framework/Results Matrices of the RDP 2013-2016; and (6) Monitoring, Evaluation and Adjustment Plan.
“As coordinators in managing development, we should keep on improving our approaches, considering how we should relate outputs with development results, outcomes and impacts so that our work becomes more meaningful –the mindset that we should display,” Director Leon M. Dacanay, in his closing remarks, said. He also reminded everybody to always consider the region’s pursuit of inclusive growth through the GATEWAY thematic strategies as follows: Good Governance and Peace and Order; Access, Logistics and Other Infrastructure Services; Trade, Industry and Tourism; Environment and Sustainable Development; Well-being and Improved Welfare; Agriculture, Fishery and Forestry; and Education and Youth Empowerment. Supportive of the GATEWAY strategies encompassing the RDP development framework are interventions along Science and Technology to attain productivity and competitiveness of the regional economy.
