||Management Response: The design of the program was approved by the MDG-F Secretariat in New York. Following the completion of the mid-term report in 2011, the Program Secretariat led intensive review and planning sessions with all MDG-F staff in all UN agencies as well as MoWA. Based on lessons learnt, the results of these sessions included revised outcomes, outputs, and indicators which were reformulated to be results-based (realistic, measurable, etc?). However, the MDG-F Secretariat in New York only agreed to the revisions on the indicators level and not the outcomes and outputs levels.
Therefore, in principle, the UN Women office in the oPt is committed to and seeks to better implement RBM, but in joint programmes like this one, there are complex management mechanisms that are beyond an individual agency?s efforts and require intervention at a central level.
