A focus on the “M” in M & E: Monitoring

May 14, 2012 at 9:37 pm Leave a comment

An often over-looked aspect of  M & E – is the “M” – monitoring.  As we often focus on the “E” – evaluation – as this can easily be outsourced by organisations and undertaken by consultants (like myself..). But monitoring requires the commitment of staff within organisations and faces many other competing priorities for resources.

A new resource book “Integrated Monitoring: A Practical Manual for Organisations That Want to Achieve Results” (pdf)  provides a very good overview to the “how” and “what” of monitoring in addition to the challenges faced.

Thanks to the Monitoring and Evaluation NEWS blog for bringing this to my attention.
