KSP Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E)

As the main implementing institution of the KSP, CID monitors the overall program management throughout the year and evaluates the program’s final results, including the KSP report itself, final policy recommendations and the satisfaction level of local consultants in the partner country. In addition to the existing monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system which focused on evaluating each step of the KSP cycle, CID recently introduced an end-of-the-program evaluation survey targeting all participants of KSP including Korean researchers as well as participants in partner countries to collect feedback from different sources.

KSP Regional Seminars

To increase the effectiveness of KSP policy consultations as a form of bilateral cooperation and broaden the base for regional KSP efforts, the CID in 2012 launched regional KSP seminars to allow participants to discuss region-specific development tasks. In 2015, such seminars were held in three regions—the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and Europe, Africa and Asia—to discuss issues and strengthen networks.

KSP Dissemination Seminar

Upon the completion of the KSP final report, a dissemination seminar to share project outcomes with experts, government officials, scholars, institutes and the press at home and abroad has been held annually, which is intended to make better use of project outcomes. This annual seminar was held providing opportunities to share results of the previous year’s of KSP national policy consultation projects, the KSP modularization projects
