Monitoring is the systematic collection, analysis and use of information from projects and programmes for three basic purposes including learning from the experiences acquired (learning function), accouting internally and externally for the resources used and the results obtained (monitoring and function) and taking decisions (steering function. Evaluation is assessing as systematically and objectively as possible an ongoing or completed project, programme or policy. The object is to be able to make statements about their relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impacts and sustainability.

Monitoring and evaluation are complementary. During an evaluation, as much use as possible is made of information from previous monitoring. In contrast to monitoring, where emphasis is on the process and results, evaluation is used to provide insight into the relationships between results (for example, the strengthened capacity of an organization), effects (for example, improved services / products) and impact (for example, improved living conditions for the ultimate target group).

Course Objectives
Monitoring and Evaluation is designed to provide a critical and professional manner and thoughts in the areas of promoting project/programme relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impacts and sustainability to the implementation of the NGOs. It provides a basic concept of developing tools and ways to reports for improvement.

  • Contribute to organizational learning and knowledge sharing by reflecting upon and sharing experiences and lessons so that we can gain the full benefit from what we do and how we do it.
  • Uphold accountability and compliance by demonstrating whether or not our work has been carried out as agreed and in compliance with established standards (e.g. Fundamental Principles and Code of Conduct) and with any other donor requirements.
  • Provide opportunities for stakeholder feedback, especially beneficiaries, to provide input into and perceptions of our work, modelling openness to criticism, and willingness to learn from experiences and to adapt to changing needs.
