The National Planning Commission (NPC) has emphasized on the need for the enhancement of quality use of Monitoring and Evaluation evidence in projects implementation in the country.
The sentiments come as the Commission in partnership with the Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs is this week holding the first ever National Monitoring and Evaluation week in Lilongwe.
In an interview with The Atlas, NPC Spokesperson Thom Khanje said efficient use of Monitoring and Evaluation evidence in projects is key to the implementation of the Malawi Vision 2063.
‘Tracking and taking timely remedial measures require effective M&E capacities so we can generate information that can inform decision-making and keep Malawians and stakeholders informed on the progress we are making as a nation and their respective roles in accelerating it,’ said Khanje.
According to Khanje Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs Sosten Gwengwe is expected to officially launch the week on Wednesday March 17 at Crossroads Hotel.
Other activities during the week include training sessions on technical aspects of M&E, exchange of experiences through presentations, expert-managed labs and panel discussions
The National Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Week is an annual event aimed at enhancing the quality and use of M&E evidence in Malawi.
The inaugural M&E week is being held under the theme ‘Enhancing Evaluation Capacity and Use of Evaluation Results in Malawi’.
