Tasks: C4D R,M&E through the Rainbow Framework
The Rainbow Framework structures the main, practical 'tasks' involved in doing research, monitoring and evaluation (R,M&E) into seven themes or 'clusters'.
The C4D Resource Hub uses the Rainbow Framework structure to give practical recommendations on tools, methods and resources that are in keeping with the seven principles for C4D R,M&E (as adapted in the Evaluating C4D project), with links to C4D specific examples where possible.
Remember, these are not steps. Most people will explore the tasks based on need and interest, rather than follow the clusters one after the other. For example, 'manage' tasks are undertaken at different points in the R,M&E process.
