ECB Accountability Standing Team Workshop Reports Available
Published on 20 April 2012
The inter-agency accountability and impact measurement (AIM) Standing Team supports improved accountability practices across ECB agencies, through field deployments to build capacity, collaboration and learning.
The first Standing Team workshops were held in late 2011, and the workshop reports are now available:
- ECB Standing Team, AIM Fundamentals learning workshop was held 26-30 September 2011 in Jakarta, Indonesia, hosted by CRS Indonesia.
All standing team members attended the AIM Fundamentals workshop, with 21 people from all six ECB agencies and from 14 countries participating.
The workshop focused on three main areas:
1) Strengthening the team
2) Improving technical knowledge of the Key Elements to Accountability and AIM tools
3) Developing “soft skills” for AIM.
- ECB Standing Team, Joint Evaluation Workshop was held 7-10 November 2011 in Casablanca, Morocco.
A sub-set of the Standing Team with evaluation expertise were trained in joint evaluations. Eight Standing Team members from eight different countries attended.
The workshop focused on a “joint” and “ECB” approach to evaluation, constantly referring to ECB’s Key Elements of Accountability, stressing how this differs from, but can complement, other evaluation approaches.
Both workshops were documented in real time on the AIM Standing Team blog, including live online broadcasts. Each session is presented on the blog, and key learning and discussion points are summarized. In addition, participants and ECB members, in particular AIM Advisers, added comments.
