PROGRESS

In terms of monitoring and evaluation, the PRODEL reference study carried out by the firm SOREPS is available.  The main project indicators (PDO and intermediate outcomes) are provided.  With the support of the Consultant in charge of assisting the project to set up the monitoring and evaluation system, PRODEL in its results has define chain products/outputs that require the reference situation.

Three joint government/World Bank supervision missions to support the implementation of the Livestock Development Project (PRODEL) were carried out.  The first held from 15 to 26 January 2018 in Yaounde and was on the field in the North and Far North regions; the second was held from the 04 to 14 June 2018 in Yaounde and on the field in the Adamaoua, East, Littoral and West regions and the third from 25 November to 05 December 2018.

As part of the implementation of a functional monitoring and evaluation system, PRODEL has recruited an international consultant whose assistance is carried out in 6 phases spread over 6 months.  Its intervention for 2018 focused on (i) training the entire Project team on Results-Based Management (RBM) and planning; (ii) restructuring results chains; and (iii) developing monitoring and evaluation tools.  The consistency of monitoring and evaluation activities has made it possible to clarify the role of each specialist in the process of setting up the monitoring and evaluation system.

With regard to the development of communication activities, the establishment and adoption of a related Strategy marked 2018.  The tool in question led to the development and adoption of the Project’s graphic charter.  From them, various communication media have been designed and produced.  Thanks to it too, a framework for consultation with the press brings together the two government bodies, 4 private print newspapers, 2 cyber media, 10 regional Cameroon Radio Television stations and 30 community radio stations, 10 per Project Implementation Area.  It has participated in most of the national events: Yaounde International Poultry Fair, World Food Day, National Food Forum and others.
