The NEPAD/APRM Kenya Secretariat is currently in the final stages of formulating its Strategic Plan for the period 2023-2027. To strengthen this, the Secretariat is currently undertaking a training on Result Based Monitoring Evaluation and Reporting in Naivasha, Kenya from 18th to 23rd March 2024. The training involves the participation of the newly elected National Governing Council (NGC) alongside Secretariat officers. The primary aim of the training is to provide deeper insights into the forthcoming Strategic Plan.

Result-Based Monitoring serves as a crucial mechanism for assessing the efficiency of the Secretariat’s policies and initiatives. By describing a clear roadmap of the outcomes and measuring progress against the benchmarks, Result-Based Monitoring stands to significantly enhance the efficiency of the NGC, aligning both with policy requirements and the Secretariat’s mandates, objectives, and functions. Consequently, in the realm of policy formulation, Result-Based Monitoring functions as a guiding example, steering decision-making processes with empirically-grounded insights. For the Secretariat, Result-Based Monitoring offers an additional benefit: the ability to powerfully showcase the Secretariat’s contributions to African development. By monitoring and evaluating NEPAD and APRM programs, the Secretariat can demonstrate their impact, garnering greater visibility and support for NEPAD’s initiatives. This fosters stronger accountability to member states, building trust and propelling NEPAD’s mission forward.

In conclusion, the ongoing workshop stands to equip NGC members with essential tools to navigate the complexities of governance effectively. Through the measurement of progress and impact, the NGC is set to make data-driven decisions, optimize resource allocation, and ensure that its policies and programs affect positive change. This transformation, in turn, empowers the NGC to emerge as a strong governing body, making significant strides toward the attainment of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development’s overarching objectives.
