Description de l'atelier: 

L’analyse de contribution est une méthode d’évaluation d’impact conçue au début des années 2000 (Mayne 2001). Elle est outillée pour comprendre dans quelle mesure et de quelle manière un programme ou un projet contribue à générer des impacts sur les publics cibles et bénéficiaires des actions, mais aussi sur son environnement. L’analyse de contribution peut apporter des éclairages sur l’impact des dispositifs aussi bien pour des dispositifs simples que des interventions beaucoup plus complexes. Elle mobilise des outils de collecte de données autant qualitatifs que quantitatifs. Cette analyse procédant par 6 étapes clés permet de renforcer le degré de connaissance et de certitude sur les différentes contributions d’un programme ou d’un dispositif. Considérant qu’un programme n’est jamais à lui seul responsable des changements observés, elle s’attache à identifier les éléments extérieurs au programme qui ont eu une influence sur ces changements et caractérise leur interaction avec le programme.

Acquis d’apprentissage:

Suite à cette formation, les participants auront une connaissance claire:

  • Des enjeux de la démonstration de l’impact et ses différentes approches;
  • Des critères pouvant aider à choisir une approche plutôt qu’une autre;
  • Des principes guidant l’analyse de contribution;
  • Du pas-à-pas pour conduire une analyse de contribution;
  • Des résultats qu’elle peut générer et de leur utilité;
  • Des outils, pouvant être mobilisés pour démontrer la causalité (process tracing);
  • Ces compétences sont utiles autant pour les praticiens que les commanditaires d’évaluation des organismes publics, associatifs ou privés.

Workshop description: 

A one - day Workshop on National Evaluation and Diagnostics and Strategizing will entail both theory and practice, engaging participants in unpacking national evaluation needs, take stock of national prioritization of SDGs, identify instruments for strengthening evaluation capacities. The Workshop is for government staff at differ ent levels of the government, and individuals from organisations who are likely to support the government in identifying and addressing national evaluation capacity needs. The Workshop will use the Online Self - Assessment Tool for Diagnosing National Eva luation Strategy Options for delivering the training. 

The 2030 Agenda calls for a systematic follow-up and review of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Country-led evaluations constitute a key element in this process and strengthening national evaluation capacities assumes importance more than before. The performance management of SDGs underscores the challenges that remain in national evaluation capacities and the need for developing national evaluation frameworks and strengthening the linkages between evaluation and public policy processes.

The Workshop is targeted to government staff at different levels of the government, and individuals from organisations who are likely to support the government in identifying and addressing national evaluation capacity needs.  

Learning outcomes:

Upon successful completion of the Workshop the participants will be able to identify evaluation needs specific to their context, key instruments for strengthening evaluation capacities, and action points their policy frameworks allow.

Workshop description:

The workshop will start with a presentation on methodologies used in private sector evaluation, whereby a double bottom line needs to be reviewed and compare them with public sector evaluation methodologies and practices. In this respect, more than 20 years of experience in developing good practice standards in the Evaluation Cooperation Group (ECG) 1 will be presented. To make the workshop as interactive with the participants as possible, two case studies will be presented. The main themes of the case studies will be the evaluation of financial intermediaries and evaluating direct equity investments. As learning from experience is one of the main features of development evaluation, the workshop will present adaptive learning as institutional strategy. The interaction with the participants on the importance of learning from experience and the use of lessons learned can help them with institutional learning in their own institutions.

Let’s start with Why? Why should we care about the Private Sector?

How should we think and evaluate Private Sector operations and treat Private Sector interventions?

Brief History of Time:  20 years of progress in Private Sector Evaluation Methodology
Presentation based in part on developing good practice standards

Evaluating Financial Intermediary (FI) – Why is FI different? How is FI different?
Case Study 1: with break-out groups to enhance learning on private sector evaluation methodology

Evaluating direct equity investments – Why is equity different from loans?
Case Study 2: with break-out groups to enhance learning on private sector evaluation methodology

Brief Peek into the Future: What is an Impact Investment? What are the Emerging trends in Private Sector Development?

Workshop description:

The importance of sustainability is rising and undeniable, yet sustainability is largely missing from evaluation including evaluation of the SDGs. This workshop will introduce concepts, techniques and processes for evaluators to plan and conduct evaluations from a sustainability-ready perspective.
Targeting more experienced evaluators and evaluation commissioners with capacities in mixed methods the workshop will facilitate participants' understanding of sustainability as coupled human and natural systems, how to introduce sustainability to theories of change and manage the politics that will arise.
 
Participants will also learn important differences between human and natural systems including temporal and spatial scales, social and natural science methods, promoting use and the importance of boundary spanning. Participants will be asked to contribute to enhancing a recently published checklist for sustainability-ready evaluation.
 
Learning outcomes:


Awareness of the differences a sustainability focus brings to evaluation
Ability to include sustainability in Theories of Change
Knowledge of the differences in attributes for evaluation in human and natural systems
Knowledge and some capacity applying a checklist for sustainability evaluation.

Workshop short description:
  
In 2018 UNICEF developed training materials as well as a guidance document, for embedding evaluation on Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs). The first training using the said materials was conducted in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for the African countries which present VNRs in 2019.  The first version of both the training materials and the guidance document counted with the support of CLEAR Anglophone Africa. The training was after replicated in Asia at the APEA regional Evaluation Conference held in Manila in February 2019.
This workshop is proposed for participants at the National Evaluation Capacities Conference (NEC). It is aimed at increasing the capacity of government officials and other stakeholders to embed evaluation in SDGs reporting.
 
The key objectives of the workshop are:

  • To raise awareness on the importance of the use of evidence for decision making and for reporting on the progress towards the achievement of the SDGs.
  • To highlight the importance of evidence-based Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) that include rigorous disaggregated data as well evidence from country-led and other types of evaluations.
  • Understand the relevance of scaling up evidence from evaluations, to inform national policies, as a means to accelerate progress towards the SDGs.


By the end of the workshop participants will be able to use evidence from evaluations and other sources in VNRs. 
 
Workshop detailed description: 
 
Every year, governments have the opportunity to present Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs),  at the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), to report on their progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs. VNRs typically include a narrative as to how countries have linked the SDGs to national efforts and what progress, gaps and efforts are found in implementation of the 2030 agenda.  Analyses done by EVALSDGs of the first three cycles of VNRs, have concluded that these reports are, in a very limited way, based on Evidence. Moreover, reports demonstrate an unclear understanding of what evaluation is and what is its main purpose.
 
In view of the above, UNICEF proposes this workshop aiming to contribute to increase the capacity of countries on the use of evidence in VNRs.

The workshop is proposed as a one-day event covering the following topics.

  • “Embedding evaluation in national plans and policies to foster transformative development” – Overarching presentation
  • The policy cycle;
  • Evidence vs opinion; different types of evidence - Group work
  • What is Evaluation and Evaluation typology
  • Country-led evaluations and evaluation systems
  • Overview
  • Real case example
  • Rapid evaluations and use of previous evaluations
  • Comparison of national evaluation systems
  • How to use evidence from evaluations to inform VNRs. Presentation followed by a group work.
  • Guide on embedding evaluations on VNRs.
  • Countries develop way forward

The workshop targets government officials who are responsible for implementation and reporting of SDGs, parliamentarians, evaluation community members and development partners.

Learning outcome:
 
Upon successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to use evidence, from evaluations and other sources, to report progress on the SDGs.

Workshop description: 

Relevance, Effectiveness, Efficiency, Impact and Sustainability, these five evaluation criteria – first articulated by the OECD/DAC in 1991 – have become a core part of evaluation policy and practice. They are widely used to evaluate international development co-operation, and even beyond the development community, a variety of actors (CSO’s, governments, and academics) are using these criteria to evaluate local and national activities.

Over the past two years, the DAC Evaluation Network (EvalNet) and our partners have taken stock of lessons learned from using the criteria, and explored the strengths and weaknesses of the current definitions. Based on feedback, we have worked to revise the criteria, and to develop guidance for how to apply thoughtfully the criteria to support better evaluations for learning and accountability. This session will present the current thinking on the criteria, including emerging definitions and principles for use. We will share some of the key lessons that came out of the global consultation, including drawing on participants’ own experience. We will then focus on how to use the criteria to support learning and accountability in national contexts. Drawing lessons from international co-operation, we will focus on lessons for policy makers, evaluators, and evaluation commissioners involved in evaluations of interventions in a domestic policy context.

This is a unique opportunity to learn first-hand about the new criteria, directly from the OECD staff leading the work. The session will provide new information on the criteria and guidance for their use, much of which is not yet public.

Learning outcomes:

Upon completing this course, all participants will be able to:

1.    Fully understand how each criterion is defined and what it means in different contexts relevant to their day-to-day work.
2.    Explain the evaluation criteria – relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, coherence, impact and sustainability – using either plain language or technical language to help different audiences understand evaluation.
3.    Use the criteria in their work, and feel comfortable distinguishing between evaluation criteria and formulating good evaluation questions.
4.    Be more effective in evaluating interventions and communicating about evaluations to support learning and accountability in their own context. (At the beginning of the session each participant will have the opportunity to set a personal learning goal related to this objective.)

Workshop content
 
Sub-national governments have an important role to play in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals:
 
1. Local governments are responsible for planning and implementation of a range of services, and the effectiveness of local governments in performing these functions have a direct impact on the quality of life of people living and working within the boundaries of municipalities.
2.  Local governments are well-placed to provide insights on how national development plans ‘land’ at local level, and feed back learning to national level for policy and programme adjustments. They are key to ‘leaving no one behind’.

Monitoring & evaluation can benefit local government in several ways including:

  • Helping to set realistic delivery targets based on accurate information
  • Reporting on programme delivery to citizens, other government structures and stakeholders
  • Learning what works and what does not and how programmes can be improved
  • Improving local governance by fostering transparency and accountability


Insufficient attention has been paid the developing monitoring and evaluation capacities in local government.
This workshop is targeted at government officials in sub-national governments, in particular local government.  National government officials responsible for supporting sub-national governments in evaluation. The workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to explore and reflect on the current state of monitoring and evaluation in local governments, focusing on local government, and how the existing monitoring and evaluation system (including capacities) can be strengthened.
 
Upon successful completion of the workshop:
 

  1. Participants will have an appreciation for the benefits of monitoring and evaluation system in local government.
  2. Participant will be able to conduct a capacity assessment of monitoring and evaluation capacity of local government.
  3. Participants will be able to identify strategies for institutionalising and strengthening local government monitoring and evaluation.


Workshop draft agenda
 
Introduction and welcome
 
Session 1: Monitoring & evaluation in local government. Why it matters.
 
The facilitator will make a presentation on the relevance of monitoring and evaluation for local government, and attempt to make the link with the SDGs. While SDG 11 is specifically focused on urban local government (cities), all SDGs are relevant for local government. Talk briefly about localising the SDGs and the need for effective monitoring and evaluation at local government level. The facilitator will emphasise the importance of linking local level M&E systems with national level M&E systems, and the role that national ministries that play in supporting local governments to develop their monitoring and evaluation capacities. The presentation wlll be followed by a facilitated discussion, asking participants to share their views/experiences about the state of monitoring and evaluation at sub-national level (focusing on local government).
 
Session 2: Conducting  M&E capacity assessment
 
Participants will be given a basic capacity assessment tool that they can adapt/expand to suit the country context. First exercise is to apply the tool and modify it in the process. Each group will be asked to do an assessment of one sub-national/local government entity (participants can decide which one they will do). Depending on the number of workshop participants, there should be no more than 8 participants per group.
 
Once they have completed the exercise, they must present their assessment to rest. The feedback will be on:

  • The applicability of the tool and modifications they made
  • The outcome of the capacity assessment
  • Reflections on the assessment process.

Session 3: Strategies for strengthening capacities
 
Presentation and discussion on strategies for institutionalising and strengthening monitoring & evaluation in local government. (use case studies)
 
Group work: Using the assessment outcomes, each group will be asked to identify strategies that are relevant for addressing the gaps identified. Groups will report back and present their strategies.
 
Session 4: Reflections on learning

Facilitated discussion reflecting on the learning  day. Ask each participant to note three things they learned from the day (stick on cards around the room) Pick up themes. Etc.
