What is this course about?
Keeping track of the progress of a project or programme is key in determining the success and relevance of development interventions. The set-up of practical and user-friendly monitoring systems will greatly assist efficient project management. The M&E system should be based on identification of the real information needs of an organisation and systematically collecting and using data for good decision-making. This course explains how to go about it.

This course is for professionals who are involved in formulating, managing or monitoring interventions; and those who prepare, supervise or participate in evaluations. Typically this would include desk officers, programme managers, task managers for national or local government, for an international donor agency or for an NGO.
