||UNW monitoring needs to significantly improve its reporting format and content. Information loopholes could discredit UNW procedures and competences and would impede a proper and independent identification of the causes as well as the lessons to be learnt. We believe that a well-documented project is also a necessary tool for risk mitigation and, if required, for “damage control” as it is a substantiation of UNW responsibility toward the use of public funds. Collection of data needs to be systematized and standardized for regular monitoring of progress, both quantitatively and qualitatively. This will provide more regular feedback on progress and allow the management to take appropriate decisions and make appropriate changes to enhance the relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of the intervention. It will also provide valuable information to the CO on areas of strength/progress that can feed into dialogue with government and in fund raising with donors. Systematically including dates and places of activities, type and number of participants, the means used, as well as quantitative and qualitative results obtained. This form of presentation should be based on standardized planning tools depending on the type of activity and target group. Periodic reports (annual and semi-annual) should distinguish between results obtained during the period covered, from the results “accumulated” from one year to another. Typically, the “accumulated” results should appear on the report's conclusion as a summary, and not mixed in the text. Reports should systematically refer to the Project Logical Framework, particularly its indicators, and mention (in the text and as an annex) all reference documents that support the activities (preliminary technical studies, plans, maps, technical reports, manuals, minutes, agreements, etc.). Particular attention should be given to ensure that these reference documents mention the author (not only the institution, but also the person) and the date when they were written. A relatively short plan of activities to be developed in the following period should be included in the document. The subsequent report should refer to this chronogram and clearly identify any delays, their causes and consequences. Finally, project partners should use a commonly agreed template to present their activities and results.
