IDEA applies the A4R software in the worshop to assess the M&E system in Cambodia

The Royal Government of Cambodia has defined as a requirement to set up a national system for M&E of the “National Strategic Development Plan (NSDP) 2014-2018” implementation, to guide the work at national and sub-national levels. To do so, Dr. Frederic Martin and Ana María Fernandez conducted a stepwise methodology supported by the Assessing for Results (A4R) software.

The main outputs of this workshop, which was held the 27th and 28th April 2015 in Phnom Penh, were:

1) Conduct a rapid, structured, participatory, and action oriented diagnostic of the current M&E system for NSDP implementation; 2) Identify and prioritize bottlenecks; 3) Identify the way forward, more specifically outline the desired M&E system for NSDP implementation as well as elements of M&E orientation guidelines.
