Monitoring and evaluation training for development results takes two weeks, and it is designed to influence job oriented skills for monitoring and evaluation that are highly demanded in the development industry. After this program, you are going to be capable of developing and managing Evaluation and monitoring Systems that meet the requirements of donor agencies. It is targeted at providing an introduction of monitoring and evaluation techniques for development outcomes with practical applications of methods and tools. This course is going to give individuals M&E tools, strategies and materials required for preparation, organizing, and controlling projects and programs. Through exercises along with teamwork, participants are going to learn all the links between results based measurement, checking and program analysis. Time will likely be allocated for an informal question and practical exercises as well as answer sessions around typical M&E trouble areas. Individuals will also be provided extra Resources for further research and study in the M&E area.


Two Weeks
