Capacity Building (for) Government partners on Results-Based Management (RBM) for an effective MRV system implementation in Burkina Faso

Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso; September 1-2, 2021 – The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), in collaboration with the Permanent Secretariat of the National Council for Sustainable Development (SP/CNDD) organized a training workshop on results-based management (RBM) and the Programmatic approach. This training come in the way of the adoption of the budget programs at the national level since January 2017. Also, the good coordination of the national Measurement Review and Verification (MRV) system in accordance with the outcome-based approach is a goal to be reached by GGGI.

This training made it possible to build up participants’ skills and knowledge on:
• understanding the RBM response planning mechanisms;

  • knowing the key management tools for implementing an RBM and understanding its specificity in relation to other management approaches;
  • building an effective use of the results-based approach in program planning and implementation;
  • an effective use of project and program resources.

Results-Based Management (RBM) helps to clearly define objectives, to make employees more accountable, to establish an internal learning system, to ensure greater transparency and to establish an institutional framework. Two of the RBM principles are similar to those of the national MRV system, namely the transparency and best practices capitalization.

Badou Gilbert Yelemou, GGGI’s MRV project coordinator, said during the opening ceremony: “The Results-Based Management training is welcome because it will allow the country to properly plan its climate interventions, its actions in terms of greenhouse gas reductions and also actions to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change”. The applicability of the RBM principles in the national MRV system is likely to increase the efficiency of stakeholders in the production of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions information while guiding decision-making on appropriate climate policy formulation for better raising of climate funds.

Mahamoudou Sawadogo, the representative of the SP-CNDD expressed the satisfaction and recognition of his institution to GGGI. It should be noted that the two days of workshop training are part of the events scheduled for August, which are eventually expected to enable the two partners to be more efficient in their climate actions.

The participants who learnt from the topic, welcomed the initiative which would enable them to be more effective in their daily planning and activities. The module on the budget program has allowed them to better understand the operation of public administration and to know the roles and responsibilities of everyone.
