Implementación exitosa - COMJUSPAZ

DevPoles capacita a más de 800 personas, entre miembros de la sociedad civil, jueces de paz, autoridades locales, y cuerpos del Estado panameño, implementando exitosamente el mandato comisionado por el PNUD.

 

El impacto de la consultoría implementadas por DevPoles ha superado todas las expectativas iniciales. El impacto medible sobre el conocimiento que ha tenido la batería de talleres de capacitación y sensibilización realizadas a lo largo y ancho del territorio nacional ha sido significativo. Según las encuestas-test de entrada y salida administradas para poder evaluar de manera científica la variación este rubro en cada uno de los beneficiarios, muestra que la variación en el conocimiento ha aumentado en un 77% con respecto a la línea de base del pensum diseñado. Las encuestas-test fueron evaluadas por los tres abogados idóneos contratados por DevPoles para impartir y liderar cada uno de los talleres.

Habiendo cumplido a cabalidad la cobertura geográfica, los impactos sobre agentes de sociedad civil fueron muy superiores a lo inicialmente esperado. De una expectativa por parte del PNUD de de 30 a 40 participantes por taller, esta se superó en promedio en un 70%. Ello resultó en un total de 848 personas de sociedad civil capacitadas y sensibilizadas sobre la jurisdicción comunitaria de paz regulada bajo la ley 16.

Impacto territorial y cobertura nacional

La cobertura territorial programada junto a la Dirección de Resolución Alterna de Conflictos del Ministerio de Gobierno fue de 50 distritos distribuidos en 10 provincias (todas) y en 3 comarcas (Emberá-Wounaan, Ngäbé-Buglé y Guna Yala -Puerto Obaldía). Con ello el equipo de especialistas de DevPoles, cubrieron todas las provincias y comarcas programadas, con una tasa de éxito del 116% en este rubro.

Higher education impacts in LA

Sharing impacts of higher education in Latin America under ALFA III.

DevPoles carried out an impact evaluation study on the ALFA III Programme for the European Commission. ALFA III was a European Union (EU) financed project promoting Higher Education development in Latin America as a means to stimulate more balanced and equitable social and economic development in the Region, thus being conducive to social cohesion. A total of 51 projects were financed during 2007 and 2013, with a mean contribution per project of €1.5 M, totaling €61.4 M in investment, and involving 418 Higher Education institutions from both sides of the Atlantic, 297 from Latin America and 121 from the EU. The evaluation team was able to interview 147 partners and 31 coordinators from all 418 institutions that took part in the respective projects.

Relevance

ALFA III addressed some of the key Higher Education issues in LA, including: (i) little convergence and integration of curricula; (ii) fragmentation and disintegration of spaces without accomplishing integration processes; (iii) institutional divergence, where large and traditional universities coexist with very small institutions; (iv) inequalities in the attention paid to the different population groups, quality and relevance of the education offered, teacher training levels, and use of information and communication technologies. Projects financed by ALFA III were highly relevant for the following reasons: (i) they granted socially and economically vulnerable groups access to Higher Education in LA; (ii) they encouraged participation from large and small universities, both public and private, in all countries in the region, regardless of organization development levels; (iii) they prioritized LA-LA (South-South Cooperation) and LA-EU interaction; (iv) includes crossover issues such as gender, environment and differently abled people.

Efficiency

The ALFA III Program demonstrated high efficiency rates. Projects were managed within set schedules, the use of funds reached 89% of disbursement ratios and attained 95% of the envisaged products. Participating universities now have better knowledge of the environment, new tools for updating curriculum, repositories, new and more accessible online courses, manuals and modernized administrative structures.

Effectiveness

Improvements to access and continuity for less advantaged strata of society in Higher Education Institutions have been backed up by developing instruments to improve quality, access and relevance of curricula, creating virtual and accessible courses, direct work in disadvantaged areas, watching over disadvantaged or vulnerable groups and the poorest countries in the region, and incorporating affirmative measures such as university policies and practices. Optimization of the link between the labor market and the business and public world, by diagnosing the needs of the labor market, increasing ties between University and business by setting up liaison offices and determining curricula aligned to market needs, leading to higher rates of student employability. Tasks focused on improving curricular convergence at regional level, through developing credit recognition models, determining standard curricula in various specialties, quality control, increased recognition of degrees, building a framework of qualifications and enhancing academic mobility. Common practices were promoted at regional level to assess quality, accreditation and academic credits, by designing several models to improve the quality of higher education institutions in LA. Support was given to developing measures at regional level to promote equal access to higher education and social integration of disadvantaged groups by setting up gender offices in universities, opening liaison offices and designing Be indicators measuring application of the third mission in the Universities.

Impact

The program was designed with ambitious goals. Important contributions from the Program in favor of the HEIs in LA are recognized with respect to: (i) increased cooperation links between the Universities in LA, which had seemed weak before ALFA III. Small universities in the region now have important links with major universities in Latin America; (ii) introduction of concepts, policies and tools to care for vulnerable groups, made visible and in many cases incorporated as an institutional policy; (iii) reaction of branch offices to the environment, unusual before ALFA III; (iv) a more rigorous look at market needs regarding human resource training, moving from a target-based curriculum to focus on skills acquisition and the student; (v) greater internalization of Universities thanks to the network effort promoted by ALFA III and to setting up internationalization offices within HEIs; (vi) dynamization of efforts to create a common Higher Education area in the region, efforts that have reached the sub-regional level and which are starting to show some results. The ALFA III Project helped to improve accessibility in two areas: (i) firstly by studying the obstacles faced by disadvantaged populations to access higher education, in unequal conditions, limited by personal or geographic physical aspects, and (ii) tools that make it easier for populations in these conditions to access HE. Some examples are linking offices, development of virtual education with accessibility, promotion of scholarships in the university system for disadvantaged groups, plus promotion of affirmative measures for the female, indigenous or Afro-descendant population to increase their presence and continuity levels.

Sustainability

Results under ALFA III outlived its financing phase and are used by project partners in many cases. The crossover aspects of gender and environment have been considered and kept within the institutional culture of the partners. The degrees of appropriation vary from partner to partner. Operation of Networks set up to run the Projects has not had the expected effect, marred on the one hand by legal aspects and, on the other, by the lack of availability of financial resources. It should be noted that the performance of networks built in LA is better than performance from networks that were built in Europe.

Bahamas IJIS system

DevPoles has been awarded an IADB financed project to address case management end-to-end across multiple agencies.

The primary focus of the consultancy is to propose a roadmap for implementing an Integrated Case Management System (ICMS/IJIS) in the Supreme Court of The Bahamas.


Given the comprehensive nature of integrated case management vis-à-vis the inter-relationship of key justice institutions, the scope of services involves active consultation withrepresentatives of numerous institutions, including but not limited to: the Judiciary; the Office of the Attorney General and Ministry of Legal Affairs (OAG); the recently established Office of the Department of Public Prosecutions, the Royal Bahamas Police Force; the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services (the prison); Social Services; the Public Defenders Office and the Bahamas Bar Association.

The scope is also comprehensive in terms of ensuring that all essential case-flow functions are assessed which impact the efficient flow of cases as they proceed through the system, including e-filing, e-scheduling, case management integration with digital recording, training requirements, and change management/communications activities. Special attention must also be given to ensuring integration of appropriate data collection and assimilation mechanisms for the purposes of monitoring and evaluation.


DevPoles se ha hecho con la adjudicación de un proyecto financiado por el BID a través del Ministerio de Seguridad Nacional (MNS) de la Commonwealth de las Bahamas. Nuestros servicios de consultoría ayudarán a resolver las deficiencias institucionales del sistema de administración de justicia de manera oportuna entre las múltiples agencias e instituciones del sector seguridad y justicia.


El objetivo principal de la consultoría es proponer una hoja de ruta para implementar el Sistema Integrado de Gestión de Casos (ICMS / IJIS) en la Corte Suprema de Justicia de las Bahamas. 

Dada la naturaleza integral de la gestión integrada de casos con respecto a la interrelación de instituciones clave en la administración de justicia, el alcance de los servicios implica una consulta activa con representantes de numerosas instituciones, que incluyen pero no se limitan a: el Poder Judicial; la Fiscalía General de la Nación; la Oficina del Departamento de la Defensa Pública recientemente establecida, la Real Fuerza de Policía de las Bahamas; el Departamento de Servicios Correccionales de Bahamas; Servicios sociales; la Oficina de Defensores Públicos y el Colegio de Abogados de Bahamas.

El alcance también es amplio en cuanto a asegurar que se evalúen todas las funciones esenciales de flujo de casos, lo que afecta el flujo eficiente de casos a medida que avanzan a través del sistema, incluidos la presentación electrónica, la programación, la integración de la gestión de casos con la grabación digital, los requisitos de capacitación y Gestión de cambios / actividades de comunicación. También se debe prestar especial atención a garantizar la integración de mecanismos apropiados de recopilación y asimilación de datos para los fines de monitoreo y evaluación.
