Legislative impact analysis and post-legislative scrutiny at the National Assembly of Nicaragua

The National Assembly of Nicaragua has introduced a legislative impact analysis tool to support the work of MPs and committees in legislation making and post-legislative scrutiny activity. The tool allows for the recording of impact indicators for policy implementation, generating quantitative reports and analyses.

The Members of Parliament in this video, Florence Ivette Levy Wilson and Arling Patricia Alonso Gómez, praise the value of the tool for impact analysis and specifically for promoting inclusiveness and mainstreaming in areas of gender, intergenerational poverty reduction, environment and intercultural participation. The indicators and reporting are aligned with tracking of the implementation of Nicaragua's national plan for poverty reduction and fulfilment of the SDGs.
