The action (Transforming Zimbabwe’s Dairy Value Chain for the Future) has adopted a Performance Based Monitoring and Evaluation system that should be strengthened by adoption of: Digital data collection system; Operational dairy sector database for storage and management of all data collected during routine programme implementation and monitoring.

This approach will enable We Effect and partners to manage process monitoring and impact measurement data, thus enabling the Monitoring and Evaluation function to track real-time information on programme performance. Monitoring and Evaluation data; starting with the baseline, other data collection activities which encompass annual performance assessments will be done digitally and this requires the setting up and uploading of a mobile/digital data gathering system (using tablets and smartphones) in line with specifications, features and functions of paper based data collection tools. The data collected using the digital system will be processed and uploaded into the database.

This activity of setting up; a) the digital data gathering system and b) electronic data storage and management (database), will be under management of We Effect Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation Officer under direction and oversight from Dairy Services. The data that will be captured in the database will be analysed Quarterly, Bi-Annually and Annually by the Database Administrator to generate reports for use by programme staff and management. The Programme Management will use the reports to make informed decisions on programme performance. These reports will be shared in programme review meetings for partners and industry stakeholders. Reports generated from the database will be consolidated for progress reporting.
