The training programme, which was held in Lusaka under the theme, “Strengthening of the Capacities of African Governments for Integrating Accountability in Development Planning”. The training focused on the need for quality data, hence evidence, to inform planning decisions; inclusive planning methods which involve various segments of society in identifying development needs and actions; budgeting in a challenging financing climate; developing institutional capacities; going all-out for transparency; achieving optimum value for resources spent; creating impact; and monitoring and evaluating development programs. The overall objective of the training was, on one hand, to strengthen the capacity of African national planning institutions to integrate accountability frameworks and evidence-based policymaking in their development planning processes, and on the other to strengthen the capacity of African national statistics institutions to collect, compile and produce the data necessary to inform and support development planning.
