Monitoring and Evaluation

Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is an important aspect of any development program. There are several purposes for performance information. These include:

  • Learning and improvement (internal and external);
  • Accountability requirements (upwards, downwards and sideways); and
  • Informing and influencing stakeholders (internal and external).

Organisations and individuals are encouraged to share resources and links which provide good examples of M&E frameworks, report formats, suggested indicators and participatory approaches.
