Welcome to the latest edition of the Pamoja newsletter. After almost two years in the making, we are particularly proud and excited to report that both Benin and Uganda have adapted the Management Performance Assessment Tool (MPAT), with Benin being the first to pilot the Tool. Read more about what we are trying to achieve in the blog below. Kenya completed Diagnostic Study of the Gender Responsiveness of the National Integrated Monitoring and Evaluation System (NIMES). The study was commissioned by the National Treasury and Planning (Ministry) through the Monitoring and Evaluation Directorate with support from Twende Mbele. The results are fairly consistent with other countries who have completed the tool, and we look forward to working with Kenya as they implement the recommendations.
