Key Actions:

1.2 Ensure effective and timely M&E on effects and outcomes of interventions (beyond output- level) and ensure regular feedback mechanisms to allow for more adaptive management.

2. Recommendation:

Maximise efficiency to achieve stabilization results.

Management Response: [Added: 2021/07/14]

In order to maximise efficiency and to ensure that resources are efficiently used to achieve C2SP results, outcomes and outputs in an economic and timely way, several steps could be taken.

Key Actions:

Key Action Responsible DueDate Status Comments Documents
2.1 Tap into community assets, the private sector and the government to ensure that the cost is not only assumed by C2SP contributions but used as a catalyser.
[Added: 2021/07/14] [Last Updated: 2021/09/02]

2.2 Conduct baselines at the community level. The current M&E framework does not include many baselines values which makes measuring attribution impossible.

In order to maximize effectiveness of the C2SP interventions, several steps could be taken.

Key Actions:

Key Action Responsible DueDate Status Comments Documents
3.1 Revisit the results framework and formulate and monitor more outcome and less output related targets and indicators, which will allow for measuring change and reducing risks of steering at activity and output levels in community-led prioritization.
[Added: 2021/07/14] [Last Updated: 2021/09/02]
Peace Building and Stabilization Portfolio, M&E Team. 2021/12 Initiated History
3.2 Apply more flexibility for new and innovative ideas, especially with youth in the communities and the private sector. For each location develop a small sub-TOC with indicators that can be monitored by local monitors, namely non-CMC youth from the community: (Ensure more youth as beneficiaries and in CMCs, which will increase the stabilisation benefits, Ensure explicitly that CAAFAG (from 15 years old) and XCs are all within the target group of beneficiaries and are represented in the CMCs, to ensure that the objective of reintegration remains, to maximise stabilisation effect, and the link to SDDRC is justified).

4.2. Explore the potential roles of the CMCs in supporting Sudan in transition. CMCs have the building blocks for effective decentralised local, community-led governance. CMCs proved to have the ability to navigate the political volatility over the political turmoil and continued to serve the needs of their communities. This constitutes an opportunity to build on these structures to further support the ongoing development of dialogue and accountability.
