In 2011 the UK Department for International Development (DIFD) allocated funds to the World Bank for the establishment of a Trust Fund to support Improved Economic Governance in Nigeria.
This became the Governance Partnership Facility (GPF) and is made up of the following components: accountability and transparency in the oil and gas sectors, governance of public service delivery, transparency and accountability of public financial management, citizen engagement in core Niger Delta states, citizen voice and engagement in reform processes and world Bank capacity to provide advice and support on governance issues.
Itad has been contracted to improve the logframe of the GPF, develop a monitoring and evaluation strategy, and input to the DFID annual report. The existing indicators will be improved following clarification of DFID’s requirements and the logframe revised to align DFID and World Bank targets. After this, the Theory of Change will be reviewed. The monitoring and evaluation strategy will include key indicators, data sources, data collection methods, management processes, responsibilities and resourcing requirements for phase 2.Image © Cycling in Nigeria.
