Abstract
While the world is not on track to reach the Education for All (EFA) goals aid to the education sector has been reduced. In a context of limited resources in which maximising student learning is a challenge, strengthening monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems is necessary, in order to make use of evidence and demonstrate results. This article argues in favour of an incremental approach to strengthening M&E systems that starts from what exists locally. In doing this, an essential first step is a diagnosis of the existing M&E system or arrangements that moves beyond technicalities and also focuses on the underlying institutional issues and the role of different stakeholders with different M&E needs. This article presents the findings from such a diagnostic exercise of Ugandas education sector M&E system. Our findings show that key elements of Uganda´s education sector M&E are already in place, though a number of challenges and weaknesses remain.
