About our Policy Tracker Project
Whenever Government designs and implements its Programs and Policies, there are high expectations that follows its public unveiling, these expectations are usually clearly defined, and it is these defined parameters that determines how Government should be evaluated. Often, there are unintended outcomes during implementation and many a times, Government Officials tasked with implementing these programs or policies intentionally sabotage the efforts made at the top of the food chain in Public Service.
Through our Policy Tracker Project, we will be carrying out on the ground survey, monitoring and evaluation of Government Formulated/Implemented Policies and how effective/efficient was its implementation and what changes it brought about (both the expected/unintended outcome).
The thematic areas our Policy Tracker Project focuses on includes:
- Civic Engagement, Human Rights and Gender-based Issues
- Education Issues

- Governance, Rule of Law, Peace and Security Issues
- Health Issues

Nigeria Economic Sustainability Plan
The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) launched the Nigeria Economic Sustainability Plan (NESP) in response to economic and public health challenges deriving from the Covid-19 pandemic. The NESP was designed to facilitate the identification of appropriate fiscal measure to increase oil and non-oil government revenue and check non-essential spending towards creating a financial stimulus package to sustain the Nigerian economy. It also articulates specific interventions to subnational entities and targeted support for the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) sector for increased job creation.
The NESP is a 12-month transitory and linking plan between the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) and its successor in the works. The plan and its 26 policy instruments will be funded to the tune of 2.3 Trillion Naira with a mix of local and external funding sources. The principle on which its implementation hinges includes the following:
- Local content and self-reliance
- Economic stimulation
- Job preservation and creation
- Pro-poor and vulnerable focus.
THE TRACKER TOOL
This tracking template will collect regular and relevant information on the implementation of the policy instruments listed under the NESP and during its lifecycle. Each policy instrument will be tracked at the input, activity, and intermediate level, aligned with the programme elements contained in the plan. The indicators (milestones for regulatory and legislative actions) will be monitored for progress only during the lifecycle of the plan.
