Diagnostic assessments

Diagnostic assessments are the systematic assessment of a country or organisation's current monitoring and evaluation capabilities and practices or an individual's M&E competencies.

National or organisational diagnostic assessments typically involve analysing formal structures, such as laws and policies, and informal processes, including the actual application and effectiveness of M&E activities.

Diagnostics can also consider the broader economic, political, and social contexts that influence M&E systems' operations. A comprehensive understanding of these elements can identify strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement.
