The security sector is not homogenous. It consists of diverse and complex institutions that serve various security and justice functions and have different processes to ensure internal accountability. This training aims to improve the effectiveness of monitoring and evaluation in security and safety programs through identifying and disseminating successful methods, tools and practices. This will, in turn, improve the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) skills of the security personnel.

The training aims at improving the skills of participants in designing, monitoring and evaluation in security and safety .
