What is a lesson learnt?

A short one-page guide on identifying Lessons Learnt and best practices, which also offers tips on formulating Lessons Learnt paragraphs.


""That's a valuable lesson I will never forget" – is a statement that everyone has either said or thought. Identifying lessons learned through our M&E efforts helps us to uncover programming practices or operational approaches that we want to promote, avoid, or share with others.  One can simply think of a lesson learnt in this way, “What would we do differently next time?  And what would we do the same?” "
