Kenya drafting policy to track achievement of SDGs

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenya is drafting a policy to track achievement of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), officials said on Tuesday.

Julius Muia, principal secretary in the ministry of national treasury and planning, told a media briefing in Nairobi that the draft Kenya National Monitoring and Evaluation Policy is being reviewed by stakeholders and will be presented to cabinet for approval by the end of 2018.

“The policy articulates a clear mechanism and framework for effective and efficient monitoring, evaluation and reporting on the progress and achievements of the SDGs,” Muia said.

Once in place, he said, the policy will provide an enabling framework for monitoring and evaluating to facilitate achievement of the country’s development goals, such as those contained in the national development blueprint, Vision 2030.

The policy will establish common structures and standards across the entire public sector for tracking progress in the implementation and evaluation of all government policies, programs and projects, Muia said.

Kenya received financial and technical support in developing the policy from development partners such as the United Nations, Sweden, and the World Bank.

Joseph Mukui, economic planning secretary at the ministry of national treasury and planning, said the purpose of the policy is to guide and improve the implementation of government policies, programs and projects in order to achieve effective and efficient service delivery.

The guidelines recognizes monitoring and evaluation as an integral part of program management and is central to the measurement of the government’s performance in general, he said.
