Progress Brief: M&E Framework Implementation Plan in Rwanda

Progress Brief: M&E Framework Implementation Plan in Rwanda
Abstract: In 2021, the Government of Rwanda (GOR) undertook a midterm review to assess the progress of the health, nutrition, and early childhood development (ECD) programs as part of the monitoring progress towards maximizing children’s potential. The midterm review aligned with the objectives of the National Early Childhood Development Program (NECDP) Strategic Plan 2018–2024 and the Strategic Plan for the Integrated Child Rights Policy in Rwanda (ICRP) 2019–2024. As a result of the review, the National Child Development Agency (NCD) developed a rolling three-year NCD operational plan (2022/3–2024/5) that integrates objectives and activities from the NECDP and ICRP Strategic Plans. The NCD operational plan (2022/3–2024/5) reflects six new strategic directions in line with the GOR mandate and underscores the need to develop a comprehensive monitoring and evaluation (M&E) plan.

During the same period (FY23), the Data for Impact (D4I) project supported NCD to develop an M&E plan (MEP) for the operational plan. The NCD MEP is a national-level harmonized mechanism for performance monitoring and evaluation with an agreed-upon set of activities, outputs, and outcome indicators for tracking progress over the three-year implementation period (2022–2025). The NCD MEP addresses standardization, measurability, accountability, transparency, accuracy, responsiveness, and learning.
