The World Bank launched the West Africa Unique Identification for Regional Integration and Inclusion (WURI) project in 2018. The project, through its two Phases, aims to “increase the number of persons in participating countries who have government-recognized proof of unique identity that facilitates access to services”. International Economics (IEC), through its CEO, developed the Framework and Tools for Monitoring, Reporting, and Evaluating the performance of the WURI programme.
M&E Framework for World Bank supported Regional Digital ID Programme
The Project at A Glance
What We Found
The WURI programme, financed by the World Bank, is a multiphase programme which relies on the ECOWAS Protocol of Free Movement of Persons and takes a series of national perspectives allowing countries to join when they are ready, and to join at different implementation levels, so far as they subscribe to the same programme development objective, follow the same approach, and adhere to the Principles of Identification for Sustainable Development.
In this view the key objective of IEC’s assignment was to develop a comprehensive framework for achieving the objectives of monitoring, reporting and evaluating the programme’s progress towards the achievements of cross-border fID systems interoperability and mutual recognition of fID credentials for access to services and regional integration.
Our Strategy and Impact
The IEC Team developed the Framework and Tools for Monitoring, Reporting, and Evaluating the performance of the programme, while ensuring that it specified the Logical Framework for assessing the progress made by the projects towards the achievement of planned results chains measured by the corresponding indicators, baselines, targets, current value, relevant data source, frequency of collection, methodology for data collection, responsible entity for collecting the data.
Following the development of the framework, the Team developed a High-Level Indicator Table and proposed a series of indicators to measure the change identified in the Draft Intervention Logic. A short and practical handbook was provided on how to address the main technical aspects and finally, the Team outlined a detailed implementation strategy of the proposed M&E system, highlighting the different steps necessary to put in place in detailed framework.
