Monitoring and Evaluation Series
INTRAC is developing a new online resource to support development practitioners involved in monitoring and evaluation (M&E) and impact assessment, including:
- those involved in developing, maintaining and implementing M&E systems;
- those tasked with designing, conducting or facilitating reviews, evaluations or impact assessments;
- those undertaking M&E tasks as part of their day-to-day responsibilities;
- managers and other development practitioners wanting to keep up with trends and debates in M&E.
The online resource builds on the many documents, papers, articles and books on M&E that have been published over the past few decades; as well as on the practical experiences of INTRAC staff and consultants. It will cover key areas of M&E including planning, data collection, analysis and use, evaluation and impact assessment, M&E systems and others.
Over the past few weeks, INTRAC has published a series of short papers dealing with the central area of planning for M&E. This is in recognition that planning and M&E are closely linked, and that effective planning is often a pre-condition for effective M&E.
It is hoped that the papers will provide an entry-point for people who are new to M&E, as well as being a useful resource for those with more knowledge and experience.
