The Advancing Knowledge for Agicultural Impact (AVANTI) initiative supported the self-assessment of countries’ monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems and capacities in the agriculture and rural development sectors through “AG-Scans”.
A preliminary synthesis of the results across the AVANTI countries showed
emerging trends in their national capacities to measure sustainable
development goals (SDGs) related to agriculture and rural development,
specifically in topics relating to resourcing, coordination, and the use of
data to inform policymaking and decision-making.
As such, we sought to investigate further and to generate learning to inform future work in these and other emerging recurrent topics; therefore, we conducted this
study: Trends in national capacities to generate and utilize data.
This study focused on the Comprehensive African Agriculture Development Programme biennial review reporting process.
