KPI: 2009 Objective for COSOP in quality • % of COSOP rated satisfactory or better at entry------------------------------------------80% • % of COSOP rated satisfactory or better during implimentation according to client survey----------------------------------------80% • % of Country programmes rated satisfactory or better on adherence to Paris Aid Effectiveness according to Paris Declaration monitoring Group----------80%

  12. Better Program Design • 7/8 projects to the board in ’09 • Currently 11 projects in the pipeline at varying stages of design • Three criteria to determine the entry of new projects into the portfolio & design • Ensure robustness & quality of projects at entry • Maximum utilization of PBAS • Progressive reduction of number of projects in the regional portfolio to match resources: maximum of 1 project per country per PBA cycle

  13. Better Project Implementation • Areas of focus • Reduction and eventual removal of projects at risk • Reduction of implementation problems, especially relating to: • Disbursement rating • Counterpart funds • High operating costs • Governance/ corruption • Project management • Non performing service providers • Inefficient Mand E

  14. Better Project Implementation • Improve development effectiveness by: • Taking over supervision of projects: 3 projects directly supervised in 2006, 12 in 2007, 23 in 2008, 35 in 2009, all projects in 2010 • Increasing the country presence (Burkina Faso included in 2009) • Outposting of CPMs (starting with Senegal and Ghana in 2009; • Newly established portofolio suport unit • Divisional dashboard to monitor portfolio performance

  16. Knowledge Management and Innovation • Expected Results: • Mainstreaming of KM in country programmes and projects starting with new projects and at mid-term review • Improving M&E (M&E regional grant) • Learning from field experiences (Scouting innovations through supervision)

  17. Knowledge Management and Innovation:Expected Results Continued… • Strengthening Fidafrique and linking to ES Africa • Improving the effectiveness of knowledge grants (Knowledge Grants: IITA Grants, Microfinance, Future focus on Rice, R&T, Millet/Sorghum) • Improving the skills of IFAD staff and partners in supervision, implementation support, innovation and KM
