The development of monitoring and evaluation capacities to improve government performance in Uganda : Desarrollo de la capacidad de seguimiento y evaluacion para mejorar el desempeno del estado en Uganda (Spanish)

The analysis takes the functioning of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) within the Uganda public sector, rather than the needs and requirements of the external donor community, as its main point of departure. The objective of M&E is seen as the improvement of the performance and effectiveness of government and its public service delivery system. M&E relates to more than the technical aspects of data collection: it ultimately derives its value not from the availability of accurate data per se, but from the way in which they are used to improve decision-making. M&E functions when it supplies managers with a flow of reliable information and analysis about what works and what doesn't as a basis for policy recommendations, optimizing resource allocation, refining institutional strategies, changing the mix of public service products or suppliers, assessing performance of staff, or underpinning accountability requirements. Because M&E addresses the performance of governments in responding to their citizens' needs and priorities, it is ultimately an issue of good public governance.
