The growing concern for accountability and results of development initiatives has led to the need for monitoring and evaluating development programs/projects. Studies show that when people 'own' development projects, they tend to be more sustainable. Community ownership of development projects is only possible when they participate meaningfully in the development and management of these projects. Participatory monitoring, evaluation and learning advocates for meaningful participation where people themselves shift from being question answerers to being question makers during project monitoring and evaluation. The course shall focus on PMEL as a management tool for strengthening participation, enhancing local capacity, and increasing local people's confidence and control over development decisions and processes. It also highlights the importance of learning in M&E.
The course fee of $2,200 includes tuition fees, full board and accommodation on twin sharing arrangement (single room accommodation can be requested for an additional fee of $10 per day of stay), course-related local travel, materials, field and agency visits, and airport transfers.
