The power of data-driven governance has been proven in many Asian markets, including India. However, monitoring results of public programs is largely nascent in India. The barriers that prevent effective monitoring include disaggregated efforts at sub-national levels, the scale of public interventions, and the lack of knowledge/technical capabilities. This is where social impact investments can make a difference. Corporations, investors, and philanthropists have pushed the needle on how they can deliver on socio-economic outcomes. Impact investment can and is touted to play a strong role in strengthening data-driven public governance for tangible benefits across society.
We warmly invite you to be part of an upcoming AVPN India Policy Leadership Lab session discussing “The role of the private sector in strengthening data-driven governance and M&E for public sector programs in India.”
The session is the first of a series of India-focused policy dialogues that will see participation from public sector officials and private sector stakeholders from India and across key AVPN markets. Through this 90-minute cross-border discussion, AVPN would like to discuss the importance and need for strong data-driven systems that enable better monitoring and evaluation of public sector programs and eventually lead to better policy programming as such
- Identified key challenges in improving the monitoring and evaluation of public sector programs
