Evidence-based Policy-Making

Evidence for policy making in Europe and CIS


Country-led monitoring and evaluation systems

Monitoring and Evaluation has a strategic role to play in informing policy-making processes. The aim is to improve relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of policy reforms. Why then is monitoring and evaluationnot playing its role to its full potential? What are the factors, in addition to the evidence, influencing the policy-making process and outcome? How can the uptake of evidence in policy-making be increased?

Country-led monitoring and evaluation systems may enhance evidence-based policy-making by ensuring national monitoring and evaluation systems are owned and led by the concerned countries. This facilitates the availability of evidence relevant to country-specific data needs to monitor policy reforms and national development goals, whilst at the same time, ensuring technical rigour through monitoring and evaluation capacity development.
