Monitoring and Evaluation of Projects and Programmes

Why Attend

Monitoring and Evaluation are basically different, though complementary. Monitoring is a periodically recurring task already beginning in the planning stage of a project or programme. Monitoring allows results, processes and experiences to be, documented and used as a basis to steer decision-making and learning processes. It primarily oversees the physical implementations process to verify that inputs are made available on time and properly utilized. Monitoring concerns itself largely with the transformation of inputs to outputs. It is expected to alert stakeholders (primarily physical) implementation problems, while evaluation is more concerned with immediate and development objectives. It is based on value judgment. Evaluation, on the other hand, analyzes objective achievement in order to maximize the impact of continuing projects and to provide guidance for the planning of new ones. Evaluations help to draw conclusions about five main aspects of the intervention: namely; relevance, effectiveness, sustainability, efficiency and impact.

Target Audience

The programme is designed for those working and dealing with projects in development institutions, banks, government organisations, planning coordinators in parastatals and NGOs.

HOW PARTICIPANTS WILL BENEFIT

The participants will be equipped with skills to design and undertake monitoring

in private and public sector projects. They will be able to formulate realistic performance indicators, undertake stakeholder analyses and write effective monitoring and evaluation reports as well as draft evaluation terms of references.
