Parallel Session A2 Impact and Outcome Monitoring Thursday 25 July 2002 11.00 - 12.00
Purpose of Session Guiding questions for outcome and impact indicators in Malawi: n What do we have? n What do we need? n What can we do better?
Focusing on 3 different areas: n Poverty priority indicators n Programme for surveys and censuses n Integration of qualitative assessments
Poverty priority indicators n Are we monitoring the right impact and outcome indicators in Malawi? n Are some of the MPRS indicators irrelevant? n Are there some important omissions in the MPRS list of indicators?
Survey / census programme n What is the future programme for surveys, censuses, DHSs, etc.? n If there is a such a programme, how does it correspond with the identified needs for data on outcomes and impacts? n If not, how should it look like?
Integrating qualitative assessments Possibilities for integration: n Improvement of the survey questionnaires in the light of participatory findings. n Timing of future PPAs / QUIMs n Scope for doing QUIMs in the same sites as surveys? n Other suggestions…..?
Recommendations n Limit data sources to Malawi data collection agencies. n Carefully examine indicators in terms of relevance for MPRS inclusion.
Concerns Raised n Reliability of HIV data and this affects target attainment.

What do we need? What can we do better? n Recommendations: n Identify a program of work to integrate MIS data with survey data n Funding is a constraint, for instance for future CWIQ which is to be funded by Government. n Need to convince policy makers about the importance of timely data collection n Capacity building for data analysis (NEC, NSO,CSR) – identify where! n District statistics
Integrating Qualitative n Integrated household survey should be followed up by QUIM – same year 2006! n Look at same research areas in HIS and QUIM, e.g. education, health, etc. n Use same sample units in CWIQ and in QUIM to triangulate, explore results and deepen our understanding of poverty n Maintain constant module in surveys to enable time trend analysis of same indicators
