Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation in Development Organisations
Sharing Training and Facilitation Experiences


© 2008 | 220 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
Planning, monitoring, and evaluation (PME) remains a challenge for many development organizations, increasingly faced with the rigors of designing and using a well-structured monitoring and evaluation system, and of linking this closely with their planning cycles. Effective PME is, nevertheless, essential for their organizational survival and to enable them to make an effective contribution to sustainable development. This book shares the 'real-life' experiences of 20 PME trainers and facilitators from Africa, Asia, and Europe and offers some suggestions for effective support to PME processes. It focuses on civil society organizations, including NGOs, church-linked development offices, networks, and people's organizations. A rich selection of examples, success stories, challenges, and practical tips are offered. The authors advocate careful and sensitive PME facilitation.
