Discussing Monitoring and Evaluation Practices in the Government of Georgia

PMC Reserach Forum


On February 19, PMC Research conducted a presentation and discussion about the findings of the policy brief “Review of Monitoring and Evaluation Practices in the Georgian Government.”

The main objective of the research was to study the extent to which the measurement of progress and the use of measurement data play a role in Georgian policymaking.
The study revealed a number of shortcomings in the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) mechanisms in the Georgian government, such as a lack of awareness of the importance of M&E, a scarcity of data, and low quality of indicators.

Members of the Georgian Alliance on Agriculture and Rural Development (GAARD) participated in the discussion.

As a result of this discussion, relevant recommendations were elaborated for the Administration of the Government of Georgia, the Ministry of Finance of Georgia, and the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia.

“Our research comes at a very important time when a number of initiatives are underway in Georgia to institutionalize M&E mechanisms at central as well as local levels of governance. The recommendations developed within this research are aimed at aiding this process and ensuring that the core principles of M&E are integrated into the design of the system,” said Giorgi Khishtovani, Director at PMC Research.

The research was conducted by PMC Research in collaboration with People in Need, as part of the EU project “Regional Civil Society Organizations Supporting Free Trade with Europe.”
