Output 2.2: Improved capacities to plan for delivery, identify and resolve implementation challenges and account for the delivery of quality interventions to strengthen human and social development outcomes
In developing capacities to plan for delivery and resolve implementation challenges to strengthen human and social development outcomes focus will be on strengthening capacities for multi-sector, multi-level multi- stakeholder and inclusive gender mainstreamed intervention design and implementation to achieve improvements in the quality of services, services demand and utilization and strengthening the enabling environment. Emphasis will be placed on complementarities and synergies between sector-based interventions in addressing issues such as prevention of HIV among adolescents and young people, reduction of stunting, healthy lifestyles, prevention ofgender based violence, women’s economic empowerment and other objectives requiring multi-sector action. Support to district government will be key to this output.
Output 3.2: Increased institutional capacities to collect, manage, analyses, package and utilize data to improve planning, monitoring, evaluation and decision-making to strengthen human and social development outcomes.
Capacity development for the gathering, analysis and use of disaggregated data for intervention design, targeting, monitoring and evaluation will aim to strengthen access to data that facilitates vertical and horizontal coordination and accountability. Investments will be made to increase the frequency and timeliness of data collection and programme adaptation to evidence. Capacities to use administrative data complemented by data from citizens for the management of services will be strengthened. In critical services such as health care, real time monitoring systems will be promoted as possible interventions to improve the timeliness and completion of routine interventions such as nutrition.
