Abstract:

Using Data to Manage International Development Projects in Africa
This panel expands current institutional thinking about the role of data in
program management and in improving programmatic transparency and
accountability. Drawing from empirical evidence, the papers will discuss
database design, field-based data collection and verification, online
reporting, and programmatic use of data.
Informed by MER theoretical and practical perspectives which include
theory-based and rapid appraisal models, the papers engage with the
importance placed on data in program design and objectives. Knowing what
data to collect, how to ensure the correct data is collected, how to
systematize data reporting, how to include all stakeholders, and other
issues related to ensuring accurate data are challenges at the center of
many MER objectives. The papers will argue that putting systems in place
which ensure accountability to all stakeholders while including local
communities are of key importance to program management. As such, this panel
presents evidence justifying the importance for practitioners and program
designers to consider the contributions data can have in ensuring that
program objectives are clearly defined, parameterized, and met.

The third paper focuses on the NGO field utilization of data to manage project. Examples of capacity
building workshops developed for NGO in Africa will be presented and
discussed. Lessons learned and opinion surveys from West African NGOs will
be presented and analyzed.
