Abstract

The Department of Agriculture is seeking to develop a comprehensive Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) system through which to measure and track its progress in respect of its vision and mission. As an intermediate step in this large task, in 2005 the Department sought to define performance measures/indicators linked to objectives as set out in its 2005 Strategic Plan. The Department commissioned the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) to undertake this work. Among other things, the report proposed monitoring and information sources related to five of the six main Key Result Areas (KRA's) that provide guidance to the Department's activities.
