CLERD continued the implementation of activities under the P-BUT project during this quarter. Two major activities were carried out: The monitoring visit and the evaluation workshop. The monitoring visit had a total 188 budget monitors while the Evaluation workshop had 116 participants who were drawn from the CSOs and MDAs that participated in the first training workshop on budget process, monitoring, tracking implementation, evaluation and advocacy. The first Monitoring visit, which took place in five of the six project locations, was part of the processes leading to accountability in budget implementation and results of the projects identified in various states, and the state of completion vis-a vis funds released for each project. The evaluation workshop carried out in three of the six project states, was to evaluate the findings from the monitoring visits, draw conclusion on the budget implementation and undertake advocacy visit to the policy makers on the outcome of the monitoring visits to project locations in the targeted sectors. We monitored a total of 70 projects across the project locations of different sectors of the economy like: Agriculture, Health, Education, Road and Housing, Women Affairs, Poverty and Rural Development etc. with potentials for positive impact in the lives of the people. Across the three states, advocacy visits were carried out to 17 policy makers of the aforementioned sectors on the outcome of the monitoring visits. The participating CSOs/representatives earlier trained on the budget process had their capacities built on the use of the monitoring tool for the exercise and understanding of indicators for evaluating budget performance. Many of the participants acknowledged that the monitoring exercise and evaluation workshop was a welcome development because it afforded them the opportunity to have a good understanding on the essence of having projects monitored and the need for citizens to engage the government more on the implementation of projects in their respective states.
