Niger Agenda 2063 Knowledge Hub

Average: 5 (2 votes)

The integrated nature of Agenda 2063 underscores and promotes integrated approaches, innovative and incentive systems that support collaboration across sectors within continental, regional, national and sub national spheres. This cross-sectoral approach increasingly requires the use of innovative tools to manage multi-sectoral, multi-partner implementation of public policies and flagship investment programs. This approach negates the traditional ‘silo’ approaches to development, and promises a more credible integrated planning model for greater transformative impact.

Geospatial tools present credible mechanisms for generating high quality and timely data, information and analysis, thereby fostering the application of multi-sectoral analyses of increasingly complex and dynamic development process; their ability to enable more frequent testing of theories of change and facilitating timely course corrections based on evidence gives them the credibility. Institutions that are capable of absorbing real-time information and have efficient systems to effectively utilize the information often achieve better results - accruing from timely corrective measures, more informed policy reforms, effective designs of programs and improved service delivery.
