Are we on track to achieve the results..?

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.

Creative partnership for development…

What is this course about?
The importance of the private sector in promoting sustainable development, from the local to the global level, is undeniable. Businesses are making ever greater commitments to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) through involvement in community development initiatives. However, effective community development is complex. This easily leads to initiatives that are not sustainable, or to businesses just writing cheques for NGOs. Neither yields optimal results – whereas meaningful collaboration can. Businesses can benefit from working with NGOs that have a wealth of technical expertise, community knowledge and local networks. NGOs can learn from business approaches and material and non-material assistance to improve their work. Jointly they can develop efforts with lasting positive impact. CSR for community development provides many exciting opportunities for NGOs and businesses to work together!

PARTICIPANTS
