Friday, May 01, 2015NPA16 NPoA Versus NDP (Areas not covered ) Some areas under fostering constitutional democracy like Highly political actions: like reverse the presidential term limit Review the representation of special interest groups
Friday, May 01, 2015NPA17 Linkage of NDP / NPoA to implementation NDP is the sole Government strategic framework for next 5 years The NDP provided MTEF The NDP provided sectoral interventions and cost estimates from which the Sectors will derive annual budgets NDP provided an implementation strategy clearly spelling out some responsibilities of key government institutions
Friday, May 01, 2015NPA18 Monitoring and Evaluation NDP has an M&E strategy. Currently M&E framework is being prepared. It will ensure indicators of NPoA are captured
Friday, May 01, 2015NPA19 Challenges The format or orientation of government sector and APRM country review report are different There were budget limitation and therefore some action points will not immediately commence like Land fund Before addressing some constraints identified in NDP some of the actions can not be implemented. The slow process of legislation is one major challenge
Friday, May 01, 2015NPA20 Conclusion Most of the Action points were captured in the NDP 2010/ /15. The monitoring of NPoA will be easier since the issues are captured in NDP which will also be monitored The NPoA will be implemented through government institutions since the NDP is the sole government strategic document. For easy integration, thematic grouping should as much as possible follow government laid down groupings
