The theme of the conference ‘Who Benefits?: The Monitoring and Evaluation of Development Programmes in Central Asia’ was chosen to reflect and promote a key component of INTRAC’s Central Asia Programme (ICAP): Monitoring and Evaluation. In early 2003, ICAP had already begun in earnest its work to train local NGOs across the region in M&E skills, with a particular emphasis on qualitative approaches to measurement; and we had piloted out own programme-wide participatory evaluation methodology. This project had led to the creation of three country-based working groups – in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan – who were beginning to define their own training needs as well as to work out how they should best assess ICAP’s work.
