Ensuring a good monitoring & evaluation systems is becoming increasingly important. Timely Indicators are needed for the design of lending operations and monitor the impacts of shocks. However, limited data availability has been one of major bottlenecks. Tackling these data constraints is imperative to advance in the “Results Agenda”.

This material consolidates the current status of data problems in terms of frequency, timeliness, and comparability. It also provides information on innovations in data production on the base of international experiences (e.g., Peru, Sudan, Tanzania, and Bangladesh).

The introductory remarks at this workshop were given by Aysegul Akin-Karasapan (Director, OPCDR) and Marcelo Giugale (Sector Director, PREM).  Ms. Akin-Karasapan demonstrated the key role played by data in monitoring and evaluation; and also stressed on its increased relevance and need in the wake of the World Bank's new, more results oriented approach to its operations. Mr. Giugale acknowledged continued efforts for statistical capacity building at the statistics office remains crucial, but also stressed needs to take advantage of recent technological and methodological innovations, like uses of cell phones for data collection. His speech at the workshop was summarized and posted in the influential Huffington Post.
