Premise: Development agencies/organizations need to know how effective their efforts have been. Who should make those judgments, and what basis? Usually, it has been outside experts who take charge. Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation (PM&E) is a different approach which involves the project beneficiaries, development agencies and policy makers deciding together how progress should be measured, and results acted on. It reveals lessons and improves accountability. Development Project Managers and Officers need to be trained to acquire the commensurate knowledge and attitude in participatory monitoring and evaluation for development project sustainability.

Objectives: The training programme seeks to equip participants with the practical skills and techniques required for participatory monitoring and evaluation of development projects. At the end of the course, participants should be able to:
  • Design a monitoring and evaluation system that allows participation;
  • Apply appropriate skills and techniques to facilitate participation in project monitoring and evaluation;
  • Disseminate monitoring and evaluation results to development projects management; and
  • Facilitate data collection, collation and interpretation in development projects
