The Kiribati Development Plan 2020-2023 is the nations guide for developing policies and programs to advance inclusive economic development in Kiribati, and is supported by the Ministry Strategic Plans by each Ministry and agency of the Government, as well as discussions with civil society and private sector.
The KDP 2020-2023 takes into account various international obligations that the Government of Kiribati has assented to. These include the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Istanbul Plan of Action, the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Accelerated Modalities of Action (SAMOA) Pathway and the Framework for Pacific Regionalism.
The government is committed to the implementation of the KDP through linkages to the annual planning and budgeting process. Additionally, the government is committed to ongoing monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of progress to ensure government funds are prioritized and used for the benefit of all Kiribati citizens. The monitoring and evaluation framework being developed to assist this process is aligned with the six Key Priority Areas (KPAs) identified in the plan:
KPA 1: Harnessing our Human Wealth
KPA 2: Growing our Economic Wealth and Leaving No One Behind
KPA 3: Health
KPA 4: Protecting our Environment and Strengthening Resilience
KPA 5: Good Governance
KPA 6: Developing our Infrastructure
The KDP M&E Framework is currently under formulation, and once completed will articulate key performance indicators and targets for monitoring and evaluating progress for all six KPAs of the KDP.
Key challenges and strategies have been identified under each of these KPAs with a draft set of specific measurable indicators, targets, and milestones that will be included in the M&E Framework.
The fine-tuning and development of the M&E framework and its usage also requires the active participation of civil society, the private sector, and our international development partners.
Annual review evaluating baselines against the milestones and targets will help to identify and evaluate progress, which will require timely and reliable information to be available to inform ongoing planning and budgeting.
Another crucial element of the M&E framework is the metadata supporting the production of the indicators, providing detailed information pertaining to what sources of data are required, computation methodologies, agencies responsible, and disaggregation requirements
