- Gain a practical focus on the tools, actors, data collection and management of monitoring, as well as the roles and responsibilities of evaluation.
- Apply key monitoring practices and carry out effective reporting through the development of an Log Frame Matrix, the identification of appropriate indicators and the efficient and effective use of results;
- Set up a project-specific M&E system, identifying appropriate performance measures and achieved results.
