The overall objective of the technical workshop was to present the guidelines on AIS and EAS assessments, the results at country level and to design and develop a framework of indicators to complement those assessments. Specific objectives were to:

  • Present and discuss the draft AIS and EAS assessment guides and the results/feedback from country implementation and testing;
  • Map and analyse existing indicators and metrics approaches with relevance to both AIS and EAS;
  • Identify gaps in the existing indicators and recommend a revised set/framework of indicators for the AIS and EAS assessment that track progress, provide insights on the performance evaluation and allow for knowledge and experience sharing among countries facing similar challenges.
