Summary Review of the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MDGS) Governance Indicators
Source of the information:
This background paper aims to inform discussions on the establishment of a system to monitor the implementation of the governance goals and strategies as articulated in Malawi's national development plan.
The aim of the paper is to inform a workshop to be held in December of relevant stakeholders i.e. those state and non-state actors that have a stake in monitoring governance performance and who might also be responsible for contributing to the collection of indicators, on an appropriate and feasible monitoring system for the governance goals of the MGDS.
The paper is divided into three parts:
• Part I sets out come general considerations for selecting indicators.
• Part II provides an analysis of the MGDS governance indicators. It is not the purpose of the paper to critique each indicator comprehensively but to provide initial observations on the strength or weakness of selected indicators under the different sub-themes.
• Part III provides an overview of selected governance indicator systems in use in Malawi with special attention given to the Africa Peer Review Mechanism governance indicators, the Joint Performance Assessment Framework for CABs and the Millennium Challenge Account indicators. The purpose of this section is to assist in the harmonisation of governance indicators drawn from different frameworks.
