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.
