Venue: Devimpact Institute Training Centre Nairobi

Results-based monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is a powerful approach that can be used to help policymakers and decision-makers track progress and demonstrate the impact of a given project, program, or policy. Results-based M&E differs from traditional implementation-focused M&E in that it moves beyond an emphasis on inputs and outputs to a greater focus on outcomes and impacts with techniques for linking and tracking indicators to assess the progress of a project to achieve long-term results.

This course equips participants with skills in setting up and implementing results-based monitoring and evaluation systems. The participants will benefit from the latest M&E practices including the results and participatory approaches. This course will bring learning to practice for participants to learn about the results levels.

Target Participants

This course is designed for researchers, project staff, development practitioners, managers, and decision-makers who are responsible for project or program-level M&E. The course aims to enhance the skills of professionals who need to research, supervise, manage, plan, implement, monitor, and evaluate development projects.

Course Duration

Online                     7 days

Classroom-based   5 days
