Monitoring and Evaluation is seen as something inherently good. But we all worry deep down that we are not getting it right. We know M&E can help us account for donor money, monitor how well a project is being implemented and even show us what difference our project is making. So if M&E is so useful why then are many NGOs slow in developing good M&E systems?
As part of the Common Ground Initiative Peer Learning Programme, INTRAC produced this toolkit to clairfy what we mean by monitoring and evaluation and provides some guidance for small and diaspora organisations on how to do it well.
