The M&E Unit within DSPACC coordinates national reports on the national sustainable goals.
In 2019, the unit coordinated Vanuatu’s Voluntary National Review for the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs. Vanuatu is the first country in the world to welcome such a review. The need to strengthen the monitoring and evaluation of government ministries’ performance against the NSDP goals gave rise to the appointment of M&E focal points across all government ministries. These officers would be responsible to implement activities relevant to the M&E Policy and NSDP M&E Framework. However the absence of M&E officers in most line ministries have resulted in a low response rate of M&E activities from each Ministries. Such delay ultimately delays the production of the NDSP Goals performance report by the M&E unit.
