Systemic M&E Discussion Series: An Interview with Dave Snowden | The SEEP Network

The SEEP Network
MaFI (The Market Facilitation Initiative)'s insight:

"When using an evolutionary and systemic approach, scale-up happens faster because the people in the system are involved in the process. If you have fast feedback loops you can allow more local autonomy because you can correct faster and the system adapts faster too. From a donor’s point of view, a fast feedback loop of partly ambiguous data is better than a pseudo-ambiguous feed once a year." (Snowden).  This is a great interview conducted by MaFI member Marcus Jenal.

Walking the talk: a tale of three countries on “water integrity”

Walking the talk: a tale of three countries on “water integrity” | Resources shared by MaFI members | Scoop.it
Jesper Elias Lauridsen & Zenebe Uraguchi Reaching the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of access to safely managed water and sanitation services by 2030
MaFI (The Market Facilitation Initiative)'s insight:
Key take-aways: Identifying incentives and capacities of key actors is quite important — for understanding relationships and power distributions. Generating evidence through a functional and right-sized M&E is crucial — as one of the pathways of scaling up future water integrity practices. Ensuring inclusion of poor and disadvantaged citizens sustainably requires the participation of those who have the credibility and leverage.

Here’s how relevant evidence matters for developing effective public policies: the case of the PERFORM project

Here’s how relevant evidence matters for developing effective public policies: the case of the PERFORM project | Resources shared by MaFI members | Scoop.it

"Broad-based experience over the past few years suggests one key factor that is critical for developing effective public policies: the use of evidence in the process of policy making. Evidence will help policymakers understand what works, where, why and for whom. It can also tell them what doesn’t work, and they can avoid repeating the failures of others by learning from evaluations of unsuccessful programmes. Evidence also challenges what we might think is common sense."

Systemic M&E Discussion Series: An Interview with Shamim Bodhanya | The SEEP Network

The SEEP Network
MaFI (The Market Facilitation Initiative)'s insight:

The podcast explores the origins of complex adaptive systems research and the application of its findings to development work. Bodhanya explains the characteristics of complex adaptive systems and their consequences in social systems, such as the economy.

 

He stresses the need to include multiple perspectives to develop a systemic view on markets and allow for solutions from within the system to involve rather than prescribe top-down solutions. In this sense, he points out, development project need to be co-constructed by multiple stakeholders.

 

Project goals should not be predefined and be flexible enough to be able to change as the project traverses though time.
