    Results Based Public Management: Tools for the Design and Implementation of Public Rural Development Programs with a Project Cycle Approach
    Module 2: Design
    2014
    Also available in:

    Since the Marrakech Round Table in 2004, the international community has supported five specific commitments related to improving the effectiveness of development assistance1, synthesized in the concept of “Managing for Development Results”. This implies taking into account from the beginning of any initiative, project or program the expected outcomes and how to achieve them. Furthermore, the implementation, progress monitoring, and subsequent evaluation should consider the expected outcomes tha t were established at the beginning of the process. In this regard, there is a great challenge for developing countries to adopt a new vision. This means breaking with old customs and patterns in the manner of handling the project cycle, changing from a focus on addressing demand to a planning process for achieving specific outcomes, established from the beginning. While there is no single approach, since each country, each sector and each project presents particular situations, there are experi ences that can be systematized and shared. The preparation of a set of tools for results based management responds to the need to break with inertial operating schemes of public development programs in the majority of countries, which do not contemplate efficiency and efficacy in achieving results. The absence of such an approach implies that substantial resources are spent without a timeframe for resolving the problems that the public interventions are intended for. The document “Results based public management: Tools for the design and implementation of public rural development programs with a project cycle approach” includes the four phases of the life cycle of a project or program. The second module presents the procedure and methodological tools for the design of a program or project which will be synthesized in the Logical Framework. In this module the methodology is shown for conducting the objectives analysis and the alternatives analysis, constructing performance indicators, i dentifying the means of verification, identifying risk and assumptions, and collecting counterfactual data for a baseline of the performance indicators of the program or project.

    A well-designed risk-based monitoring procedure for food safety hazards is one of the key elements for food safety control system. To ensure the success and effectiveness of establishing a monitoring procedure, a risk-based approach in ranking food hazards should be applied during the initial step for developing any monitoring programme. This would permits governmental and regulatory authorities to allocate resources most effectively for food safety control in their country. The best risk-ranking tool to be used should be selected on the basic of risk management requirements as well as data availability. Risk categorization, or the use of a risk matrix, is an example of a risk ranking tool, which can be applied to microbiological or chemical food safety hazards, when limited quantitative data are available. In order to strengthen the capacity on risk-based monitoring programme, FAO, collaborated with Thai Food and Drug Administration (Thai FDA), held the regional training course on “Capacity building on risk categorization for ranking risk of ASEAN food hazards for developing the risk-based monitoring protocol for food safety” from 23 to 25 April 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand. Over 30 participants attended the three-day training course. Through technical presentations, examples of good practices in other countries, and group work session, participants obtained knowledge on the principles of risk categorization. The training course enabled participants to discuss which approach ASEAN would apply for risk categorization for ranking of ASEAN food safety hazards, which further be used for developing the ASEAN risk-based monitoring procedure for one ASEAN common hazard.
