About the course
Many projects/programmes have not adequately incorporated participatory monitoring in their activities. Consequently, monitoring has continued to be viewed as an activity that is carried out by outsiders, or an activity to satisfy funding conditionality.
Where monitoring has existed, it has mainly focused on efficiency (i.e. numbers of completed activities), overlooking the effectiveness (i.e. functionality, utilization), for the realization of the intended benefits. Even then, the information collected is not fed back to the users. This has led to delayed or no action taken on problems identified leading to unreliability of services and collapse of installations, contributing to the projects/programs not achieving the intended results.
The course introduces new approaches and strategies for in-building monitoring into projects/program activities. The course emphasizes results based management approach, the involvement of users in the process of identifying issues for monitoring, data collection, analysis and use of information for taking action.
Who can benefit from this course?
This course is designed for participants in WES development sector, senior managers and planners working in WES projects/programmes, programme/project staff involved in monitoring activities in the fields of health/hygiene promotion and community development together with trainers in participatory monitoring.
