Abstract:

The OECD is actively engaged in promoting donor harmonisation. Thus the InfraPoor Task Team recommends that donors promote the development of management information systems, ex ante impact assessments, monitoring systems and the like for each infrastructure sector. Good data and indicators and robust assessment and monitoring are crucial to effective implementation of the guiding principles. Ex ante assessments help design projects that promote pro ‐ poor growth, monitoring is vital to verifying that planned improvements are on course and to correcting design flaws, and evaluation informs future designs and ensures accountability to investors and stakeholders. The current situation is far from perfect: different methods and instruments are used to conduct similar tasks. Donors make multiple demands on partner countries. Finally, there is insufficient capacity to manage data and undertake analysis. This chapter offers guidance on overcoming these weaknesses.
