The Monitoring and Evaluation wing aims to systematically assess and improve the effectiveness of NACTA by providing a structured framework for measuring progress, identifying areas for enhancement, and ensuring adaptive strategies in the face of evolving terrorist threats.

During the past year, M&E has come a long way in evaluation and NAP Portal is now the prime tool for data collection and analysis for CT activities. For the coming year, M&E aims to improve NAP Portal by expanding its scope and incorporating advance analysis tools. Furthermore, M&E aims to strengthen the evaluation of projects by NACTA and its partners.

In the face of growing intolerance and terrorism, our approach is grounded in the continuous empowerment of law enforcement institutions. We are committed to providing the necessary tools and resources to enhance the efficiency of efforts aimed at preventing extremism, improving detection, and formulating responsive measures.

M&E emphasizes learning, collaboration, impact, accountability, organizational effectiveness, and a host of other purposes for evaluation in our vision statement.

M&E Branch emphasizes its commitment to innovatively addressing the challenges of extremism and terrorism. This is achieved through proactive data assessment and management at both provincial and regional levels, aiding in the coordination of national efforts. Capacity Enhancements of law enforcement agencies, aimed at countering societal intolerance and terrorist activities, are identified as key strategies. Necessary tools and support are provided to agencies, thereby strengthening their ability to identify, prevent, and respond to such threats.

Robust monitoring and evaluation systems have been established for detecting patterns, trends, and emerging threats in extremism and terrorism. Data is gathered and analyzed from various sources, including intelligence and law enforcement reports, to develop evidence-based, proactive strategies.

The importance of collaboration is central to the branch’s approach. Working closely with law enforcement and other stakeholders is considered vital for creating a comprehensive and united effort against extremism and terrorism, aiming to establish a coordinated response.

The goal is to bolster the resilience of both law enforcement and society against these threats through the utilization of data-driven methodologies, the forging of strong partnerships, and the promotion of a culture of vigilance and intolerance towards extremism and terrorism.

The core values for evaluation are transparency, authenticity and commitment to impact. Evaluation Vision for NACTA is the commitment to promote learning among staff, partners, and the stakeholders through evaluation, research, and ensure informed strategic decision making, building evaluation capacity, fostering adaptive change, and help its partners achieve impact in making Pakistan a peaceful country.
