National Medium Term Development Strategy

For more than two decades, African countries have demonstrated a commitment to work as a collective to enhance governance and public administration effectiveness across the continent.

While the policy dialogues (conferences and seminars) provided some learning opportunities and exchange of information and, on occasion, involved undertaking research projects and resultant publications did not translate into sustainable collective efforts to support improvements in governance and public administration on the continent. In recognition of that deficiency, the Second African Conference….

Evaluation Plan

A plan for evaluation should be correlated well with the specific program for which it has been developed. As you continue to work on Assignment 4, it is important to bear in mind that an evaluation plan is distinct from–yet aligned with–the program plan and contains its own goals and objectives.

This week you integrate the knowledge and discernment you have developed to formulate a plan for how evaluation could be an integral part of your program (see attached file in file section named “Week 9 Discussion”).

To prepare for this week’s section of Assignment 4:

Keep your own program in mind as your      review the information presented in this week’s Learning Resources. Develop an evaluation plan that      includes goals, objectives, and activities. Consider what type….
