Participatory, Monitoring & Evaluation - Advanced Course

11th August, 2013 to 15th August, 2013
Event City: 

Development organizations need information on the effectiveness of their efforts. But who should make these judgments, and on what basis? It is the norm that external experts take charge of this process. Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation is an approach that involves local communities, development agencies and policy makers consulting and agreeing on how to measure progress and use the results. This approach reveals valuable lessons and improves accountability. It encourages people to examine their assumptions about what constitutes progress and to address any contradictions and conflicts that can emerge.

IIRR has designed the Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation course (PME) to address the concerns of development practitioners. The current trends of reduced global resources and increased demand for good governance and accountability call for increased effociency, effectiveness, relevance and sustainability of development efforts. IIRR has over 80 years of development experience in Asia and Africa, with participatory monitoring and evaluation as one of the pillars of its development programs.
