About us




The Social Development Program 2007-2012 establishes the national objectives and strategies regarding Social Development, which are aligned with the Core Ideas and Objectives of the National Social Development Plan 2007-2012, and seek to contribute to sustainable human development by developing basic education, health and nutrition capacities that allow greater opportunities for equality in terms of inclusion and self-improvement, particularly for the population in conditions of poverty.

To accomplish this objective requires the implementation of actions focused on promoting equal opportunities in order to reduce the gap between the wealthy and those most in need. The Ministry of Social Development sets out five objectives through which is seeks to contribute to achieving the challenges set by Public Federal Administration during this period. Specifically, Objective 5 establishes "Strengthen the use of public resources through efficient management and better interinstitutional coordination with the three levels of government and civil society" through Strategy 5.4 "Institutionalize the processes of planing, evaluation and monitoring in order to provide feedback on programs and improve the attention of the serviced population" and Strategy 5.5. Reduce operating costs, increase productivity and improve the quality of the goods and services offered.

Strategy 5.4 seeks to strengthen the processes of planning and evaluation for providing feedback on programs and, in so doing, improve the attention of the serviced population, as well as develop a results-based monitoring system that ensures the programs are informed of the outcomes of evaluations regarding time management and improvement of processes.


Strategy 5.5 seeks to minimize secrecy, avoid intermediaries and the leakage of funds by adopting and strengthening indicators that allow the efficiency of expenditure to be analyzed objectively and transparently.

In this framework of reference fits the role played by CONEVAL in National Social Development Policy which, according to the objectives set out in the General Law on Social Development (Ley General de Desarrollo Social), indicates that National Social Development Policy must guarantee forms of social participation in the formulation, execution, instrumentation, evaluation and control of social development programs.

The evaluation and measurement of poverty by CONEVAL must be viewed as an indispensable instrument that serves society and Federal Public Administration which, in addition to providing for oversight of social policy and programs, allows them to be corrected in an informed way. The evaluation of social development policy implies reviewing numerous processes that range from design, operation and impact to the efficiency and efficacy of the policies and programs in order to improve the effectiveness of government actions and and fulfill the objectives and governing ideas of social policy.

The primary objective of social policy is to tackle poverty; knowing the phenomenon and its complexity is not enough. It requires quantification, characterization and spatial location in order to better design policies, programs and social development actions thereby ensuring that the allocation of spending is efficient and effective. At the same time, the adequate measurement of poverty is vital to evaluating the impact of social policy. Accordingly, measuring poverty is not just a challenge due to its complexity, but also because of its implications to design and evaluation of social policy.
