|Titulo||Towards an evaluability assessment of social plans and programs in Argentina. A study of 16 national initiatives|
|Resumen||(Documento en inglés) Are national social plans and programs under conditions to be evaluated in a credible and reliable way? Does their design include monitoring and evaluation elements? Is there reliable information available to assess the effective results of public policies? Is the vision of multiple actors taken into account in this evaluation of social effects? And lastly, are the necessary resources in place to ensure we can assess whether the objectives of these interventions have been accomplished or not?|
In order to assess whether it is possible to produce relevant data about the effectiveness of social policies in Argentina, 16 social policy programs were studied in an exploratory manner referring to five different capacities (1) the quality of the planning and design of intervention to achieve the desired effects; (2) the quality of the information system for the monitoring, production and archiving of information; (3) the planned evaluation strategy; (4) the strategy adopted by the actors to assure participation during the different stages of monitoring and evaluation, and (5) the resources allocated to carry out the evaluation.
