1 Content of an M&E Matrix M&E Capacity Strengthening Workshop Addis Ababa4 to 8 June 2012Arif Rashid, TOPS
2 M&E Matrix M&E Matrix is ONLY a key component of the overall M&E Plan. It provides detailed information about how the goal, strategic objectives, intermediate results, outputs and activities will be monitored and evaluated.The M&E matrix covers all the information required to understand, collect, tabulate/analyze, disseminate and report on any indicator.It is an extension of PMPSlide # 1
3 Content of a M&E MatrixWe need to develop a matrix for each indicator that the M&E system will track.In the next few slides we are going to present the content of a Matrix.We have used Average Household Dietary Diversity Score as an example to create this matrix.Slide # 2
4 M & E Matrix Indicator Title Average Household Dietary Diversity Score DescriptionHousehold dietary diversity is defined as the number of different food groups consumed over a given reference period. This is a proxy indicator of household food access.Indicator typeImpactDirection of ChangeHigher is betterUnitHouseholdRationaleA diversified diet is highly correlated with factors such as caloric and protein adequacy and household income. Even in very poor households, increased food expenditure resulting from additional income is associated with increased quantity and quality of the diet. Number of food groups is a better measure of dietary diversity compared to number of foods, because a household may consume five different food items in a day and three of them might be cereals or starch.Slide # 3
5 M & E Matrix Information need Number of food groups out of 12 consumed in the past 24 hoursTabulationHDDS = Sum (All food groups consumed by a household)Numerator/DenominatorSum (HDDS of all households)/ Total number of householdTarget groupAll households in the project target areasData source/means of verificationHouseholds from a representative sample of the target population. Means of verification will be baseline and end line survey reportData collection methodPopulation-based quantitative household survey for baseline and endlineStrataNoneFrequency of collectionBaseline, end-line and annualSlide # 4
6 M & E Matrix Data analysis temporal, among strata, progress towards targetBaseline value3.0Target and timeframe4.5 in Y5Communication strategySurvey report, bulletin tailored to the needs and interest of managers, technical team, food security adviser, and field staff; stakeholder presentation and discussion of baseline and final evaluation survey findingsReportingIn baseline and final evaluation reports and in Annual Results Reports following the baseline and final evaluation surveys. Also to government line ministries if agreed.Primary responsibilityM&E Coordinator/ M&E ManagerSlide # 5
8 Overview of Data Collection for Average HDDS Measurement EffortGeneral methodApplicationHighPopulation based household survey of a representative sample in baseline and end-line.Baseline and end-line survey will be carried out by external independent contractor following FANTA guidelines.Slide # 7
9 Practice SessionPlease use a similar format presented here to develop M&E Matrix for one impact indicator, one outcome indicator and one output indicator.Using indicators from the IPTT of your project, please develop the following:A matrix for each indicatorPerformance tracking table, andData collection method for each indicatorEach participant will work independently or in a group with the participants form the same projectSlide # 8
