Innovations in Monitoring & Evaluating Results Discussion Paper

Innovations in  Monitoring & Evaluating Results Discussion Paper | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

This discussion paper, edited by Jennifer Colville for the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), provides a detailed inventory of innovative practices used for monitoring and evaluation in a development context.

 

Eleven innovations have been identified with key features in most of these being increased frequency of output and broader citizen participation. The innovations examined and discussed are: crowd-sourcing; real-time simple reporting; participatory statistics; mobile data collection, micro-narrative; data exhaust; intelligent infrastructure; remote sensing; data visualisation; multi-level mixed evaluation method; and outcome harvesting.

Social media for anticorruption? Exploring experiences in the former Soviet block

Social media for anticorruption? Exploring experiences in the former Soviet block | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Spurred by events in the Arab world and high profile examples like the Indian Ipaidabribe.com, the role of social media to fight corruption and, more broadly, improve governance has been in the spotlight recently (see e.g. the Accountability 2.0 blog http://bit.ly/nXUecB). Perhaps the most comprehensive reports we have come across in this area are from the Transparency and Accountability Initiative. Their global mapping report on technology for transparency and the latest piece on the state of the art in transparency, accountability and citizen participation are particularly informative. Ditto for the online tracking tool on technologies for civic engagement. [...]

In order to start to address these gaps, our regional office is about to embark on a study that aims to provide a country by country overview/inventory of initiatives related to use of social media for anticorruption as well as some more in-depth analysis of selected examples. Here’s a very initial inventory (http://bit.ly/oWoVMk), courtesy of my colleague, Piotr Drozd. Eventually, we hope to move beyond the analysis and, in true web 2.0 fashion, “learn by doing” through actual small scale pilots.

Are you interested in this topic? Do you have any pointers or suggestions that could inform our research and make it more relevant to your needs? Do you know of any case studies we could include our research? We’d love to hear from you. Original post: http://bit.ly/qrwV30
