Kenya’s economic performance has been negatively affected by the effects of drought/floods and therefore it is considered important to promote initiatives that focus on effective response to droughts, which can be the basis for a more comprehensive disaster preparedness strategy. Droughts in Kenya have a direct impact on the household food security of over 10 million people living in drought-prone areas, eroding the assets of poor communities and undermining their livelihood strategies, culminating in a downward spiral of increasing poverty and food insecurity.
To develop a robust Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Framework and System, for the NDMA. The framework will provide methodical process towards regular systematic gathering, capturing, analysis and dissemination of information on progress of the programmes, projects and activities at all levels. It will enable the Authority to determine its contribution towards achieving the Drought Risk Management/Ending Drought Emergencies Medium Term Plan for 2013-17.
Outline the process to plan, gauge and assess the impact and effectiveness of the programmes, projects and activities for future information, policy and strategy. The framework will coordinate with, build on, support and complement the National Integrated Monitoring and Evaluation System (NIMES).
