Why this training ?
The programming and practice of development interventions has evolved significantly in the new millennium. On the one hand, we have witnessed concerted efforts by the international community to streamline development efforts symbolized by the MDGs. At a more micro level, we have witnessed a growing awareness among development practitioners to innovate and learn from experiences while adhering to the utmost levels of accountability and transparency.
Development institutions today are far more cognizant of the need for objective planning, efficient implementation and effective delivery of development outcomes. These advances have accentuated the need for responsive M&E systems to be instituted within organizations and projects. An appropriately designed and executed M&E system not only facilitates greater learning and reflection, it also helps institutions in building greater ownership among all stakeholders by improving upstream and downstream communication.
