Workshop description

They are constantly being requested by their donors and governments to make their programs/projects more relevant to beneficiaries and to be more accountable for their use of resources. These managers must have good M&E skills at their fingertips so that they can use when making decisions and setting priorities.

This calls for an efficient and effective training on monitoring and evaluation theories, tools, concepts and systems. The four day training course is targeted at M&E practitioners, project/program managers/officers, researchers, database managers and any other person that may be interested in this training. It seeks to enhance participants understanding of M&E with the view to improving implementation, decision-making, and management capacities through learning and action.
