Finalising the strategic plan
1st June 2007
A group of seven monitoring and evaluation (M&E) specialists from John Snow, Inc., Constella Futures, Tulane University and UNFPA met with John Skibiak and Margaret Neuse on June 8 in Washington, DC to review and refine the indicators in the Coalition´s Strategic Plan. Participants at the meeting also identified areas where collaboration among the agencies could potentially address the Coalition´s own M&E needs. Key recommendations included: focus on a core set of countries for M&E; establish a two-phase timeline; focus on indicators within the Coalition´s "manageable interest"; and highlight indicators that demonstrate the added value of the Coalition.
Outcomes and recommendations of the meeting are now being incorporated into the Strategic Plan, which will then be sent back to the M&E group and the Strategic Plan Task Force, then to the Executive Committee for approval.
