NSDP UPDATE 2009-2013: MONITORING INDICATORS
Principles for Inclusion in NSDP Update 2009-2013
Building on the results of reviews, discussions and consultations on NSDP 2006-2010 monitoring indicators that have taken place so far and lessons learned in carrying out work to monitor implementation of NSDP 2006-2010, the following principles will be followed to select monitoring indicators that will be included in NSDP Update 2009-2013.
1. The NSDP 2006-2010 targets and indicators included a selection of CMDGs and additional targets and indicators on RGC’s reform programs and key socio-economic development priorities. Based on lessons learned in carrying out work on actual monitoring of these indicators, where there is evidence that an indicator needs further refinement or is not easily measurable appropriate, action will be taken to refine it or to eliminate it from the list (Cambodia at a Glance and Tables), as necessary. Also, based on revision of targets and indicators of global MDGs, that became effective as of 1 January 2008, the targets and indicators of relevant CMDGs will be updated to incorporate any changes in the global MDGs.
2. Any new indicator, that is, an indicator that is not included in the final list from step #1 must meet the following criteria to be considered for inclusion as an indicator in NSDP Update 2009-2013:
i. Identify WHO will be Responsible for Monitoring the Indicator: A line Ministry/Agency that will be responsible for monitoring the indicator must be identified, and the willingness of the concerned Ministry/Agency to carry out this work must be secured.
ii. Assurance that data required to monitor the proposed indicator is available from administrative statistic or could be collected by NIS.
iii. Assurance that the Ministry/Agency taking the responsibility has the capacity and resources available to carry out the analysis and report monitoring results.
3. The consolidated list of indicators compiled based on outputs of steps 1 & 2 will constitute the potential list of monitoring indicators that could be included in NSDP Update 2009-2013.
4. The final list of indicators that will be included in the NSDP Update 2009-2013 will be established by a decision of the four central agencies, i.e., MoP, MEF, CRDB/CDC, and SNEC to ensure relative balance between various goals of the CMDGs, RGC’s reform programs, and other key socio-economic development priorities.
Establish a sub-group of the TWG-PPR and task the sub-group to produce a "potential list of monitoring indicators that could be included in NSDP Update 2009-2013" (output of step #3) along with rationale & documentation to support the removal or addition of any new indicators.
Deadline: The Sub-Group of the TWG-PPR needs to complete this task no later than the end of September 2009.
