A great majority of the world is suffering the effects. COVID-19 has also brought drastic changes in how organizations operate due to travel restrictions, quarantine, and social distancing orders from governments who are desperate to slow the spread of the virus and lessen its impact.

    Voluntary National Reviews in Africa guide
    (CLEAR-AA, 2019-11) CLEAR-AA; UNICEF
    This guide is intended for officers in African governments who are involved in developing voluntary national reviews (VNRs) of country performance against the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is also intended for agencies supporting VNR processes, such as UNICEF country offices, donors, etc. It is important that the SDGs are part of government planning, and not seen as external goals separate from what governments and other actors are doing. Hence the VNRs should not be separate processes, but report on what governments and other actors are doing to address their domestic goals and their links to the SDGs. For the VNR process to be valuable, it should not just be a compliance exercise, but contribute to reflection, learning and improvement of government and non-government programmes, and assist in integrating the SDGs into these domestic goals. For the VNRs to be meaningful, they need to be based on evidence. Evaluations are a powerful source of evidence of how or how not government policies and programmes are working and why, and guidance on how and where to improve. Evaluations demonstrate where resources are being poorly used, and enable performance to be improved using the same budget envelope. The objective of this Guide is therefore to assist in the incorporation of evidence from evaluations to inform country policies and programmes, and the use of these results in the development of the VNRs.

    City Power Training Report
    (CLEAR-AA, 2017-02) CLEAR-AA
    Capacity building is generally provided to help organizations to develop their own capacity to better fulfil their core functions, and achieve their own mission. It requires in depth reflection on organization’s culture, values and vision. The City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality led by the Group Strategy Policy Communications and Relations (GSPCR) embarked on a city wide Monitoring and Evaluation capacity building programme which commenced in July 2016. This created some interest in the city as such private entities as ‘City Power’ wanted to go the same process with their staff (senior managers). Improve the organization’s overall performance and its ability to adapt itself within a changing context.
