The Nepal National Programme of Action for Child Development in the 1990s (NPA) required a mechanism to guide and monitor progress toward its goals. When the plan was developed in the early 1990s, there were serious gaps and weaknesses in the data on indicators relevant to programme progress. Several essential indicators were not being measured, and most available were based on the facility-based records of the Government ministries providing basic social services. Such data did not reflect the situation in households and communities. Even the comprehensive and relevant national household survey, the Nepal Family Health Survey of 1991, lacked data required to measure the nutritional status of children and women and several other key indicators. Few of the existing sources could provide the type of detailed information needed to improve the interventions related to the NPA. Following almost two years of discussions and activities between the National Planning Commission (NPC) and UNICEF concerning the need to measure progress on the NPA and the types of data required, an agreement was reached in 1994 to introduce the Nepal Multiple Indicator Surveillance (NMIS). The evaluation examines NMIS across its cycles. Throughout the report, observations stress specific issues related to how NMIS was carried out and recommendations aim at both strengthening the system and providing guidance useful for other research studies and monitoring and evaluation systems. The National Planning Commission (NPC)plays a coordinating role in development planning and progress toward development goals. The NPC interacts both with other HMG/N organisations and all donor agencies seeking to assist Nepal. National Plans are developed under the coordination of the NPC and progress toward the stated goals is monitored by this agency. All the Line Ministries report regularly to the NPC which monitors their progress toward sectoral and programme goals. The Social Sector Division of the NPC is the highest planning and operational Government counterpart for UNICEF in the country. Development of UNICEF-HMG/N Country Programmes of Cooperation is led from the Government side by the NPC and it was this agency that collaborated with UNICEF in 1991 –1992 to develop the Nepal National Programme of Action for Children and Development in the 1990s (NPA). This NPA was based on the agreements and principles of the World Summit for Children and its Declaration in 1990 NPC and UNICEF discussions on the NPA goals raised the issues of how to obtain accurate and acceptable baseline information along with subsequent measurements needed to report mid-decade progress and end- decade achievement.
