3 MAIN FINDINGS Most of the respondents had a positive assessment of the PDF They found the PDF as an effective mechanism for policy dialogue among the development community.

4 MAIN FINDINGS Most of the respondents want the next PDF to happen one year from the last PDF (February/March 2012). Though they had positive assessment on the event, respondents made specific comments on the follow-up discussions after the PDF, and noted the need to have a monitoring and evaluation mechanism for PDF WGs. Respondents strongly suggested to have advanced copies of the material beforehand in order to properly formulate their comments at the PDF. They appreciated the team’s effort in preparing for the event in such a short span of time though they suggested to have a more advanced notice next time. 4 PDF 2011 SURVEY RESULTS

11 SECTOR A year from now Two years from now Others Government3064 Development Partners 3028 Civil Society5-- Private Sector211 Not Specified794 TOTAL Before the next SONA Every six months Every 18 months Every year to review and monitor the agreed workplan Before the next SONA Every six months Every 18 months Every year to review and monitor the agreed workplan OTHER SUGGESTIONS: Most agreed that the next PDF meeting should be held a year after, e.g. March PDF 2011 SURVEY RESULTS

12 COMMENTS ON THE TOPICS DISCUSSED There is an obvious evasion in using the words “reproductive health” in the human development cluster. More emphasis on education and security, population and reproductive health rights. Consider cross-sectional implications of Disaster Risk and Climate Change and explore opportunities of green growth. More discussion on the HD cluster since the sustainable rural development group expressed some concerns about being clustered here. 12 PDF 2011 SURVEY RESULTS

13 COMMENTS ON THE PROPOSED CABINET CLUSTER SET-UP Adopt the clusters at the Cabinet level and transform existing PDF WGs into sub-working groups. Cluster too big, might be difficult to manage, this is ok for follow- up meetings but not for the main PDF. More analysis on how existing PDF structures can be more seamlessly integrated into government cluster configuration. Suggest an additional cluster on sustainable development issues. Work planning session for the different clusters to come up with their respective work plans to be circulated among their members. There should be a subgroup on the Rule of Law and Access to Justice under the Governance and Security cluster. 13 PDF 2011 SURVEY RESULTS

14 COMMENTS ON THE FORMAT/PROCESS Discourage expressions of support as they don't encourage substantive dialogue. Revert back to the old format to allow more in-depth discussions. More participation from NGOs and CSOs to add more flavor to the discussions. Presentations should be standardized. Put donors where they should be, i.e., in the background, supporting local initiatives. 14 PDF 2011 SURVEY RESULTS

15 COMMENTS ON THE FORMAT/PROCESS I got the impression that the event was in a hurry. Good job in restricting boring statements by donors. To avoid wasting time, comments/suggestions should be submitted before the forum proper. The host may facilitate regional/sectoral consultations before the PDF to resolve minor or medium level bottlenecks/gaps even before reaching the level of agency/department heads. 15 PDF 2011 SURVEY RESULTS

16 COMMENTS ON POST PDF DISCUSSIONS Hold the PDF after the publication of PDP to engage in more concrete discussions on the work plan of the different working groups. Provide mechanisms for inputs/comments outside plenary discussions. Improve knowledge management and e-discussions using web- based information technologies. Activation of task forces, publication of goals and indicators. Close monitoring by cluster is crucial as against updating of progress towards the next PDF. Follow up actions to develop design and monitoring framework with measurable indicators and clear budgeted activities to achieve its targets. Develop a mechanism to ensure all questions are responded to. 16 PDF 2011 SURVEY RESULTS

17 COMMENTS ON LOGISTICS It would have helped if we had all government presentations in advance. More time to interact next time, perhaps a 2-day event. Excellent venue though prefer to hold not on a weekend. Advance notice of at least two months before the next PDF. Sound/video quality not as good as the economic year- end report. Early announcement of the President's attendance would have attracted bigger participation. 17 PDF 2011 SURVEY RESULTS
