Monitoring Rural Development in East Asia. World Bank Staff Working Paper No. 439.
Deboeck, Guido; Ng, Ronald
The paper presents results of discussions during an 8-day workshop (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, December 1979) on monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of East Asian and Pacific rural development projects. Major workshop themes identified are managerial, technical, and institutional aspects of monitoring. The introduction discusses previous World Bank workshops on M&E and the format of this workshop. A second section, on managerial aspects of monitoring, covers the need for monitoring and expectations and disillusions about monitoring. The section on technical aspects discusses data collection, data processing and analysis, and presentation of monitoring results. Institutional aspects are divided into organizations, role of consultants, and staffing and other resource requirements. A table presents costs of 35 East Asian agriculture and rural development projects (1975-79), including cost of M&E and this cost as a percentage of base costs. A final section describes a workshop field exercise, intended to focus on design of M&E systems in a practical manner. Abstracts of case studies on M&E submitted by participants (36 project managers and M&E officers from 7 counties) are included in an appendix, as are lists of participants, papers submitted, and 35 selected references, and the text of the opening address.
