Monitoring and Evaluation for Governance


This professional development workshop provides a useful basis to develop effective frameworks for monitoring and evaluating the implementation of development plans, budgets, programs and projects. The course adopts a perspective of using M&E to improve governance and so also considers the M&E in an oversight role.

The primary framework adopted is the logical framework or logframe which is based on the “results-chain logic”.  The Logframe is a tool that can communicate the essential elements of a complex programme, clearly, and succinctly throughout the programme or project cycle.   The Logframe is used to develop the overall design of a project, to improve project implementation monitoring, and to strengthen periodic project evaluation.  In essence the Logframe is a cause and effect model of project interventions to create desired outcomes.  The emphasis on a logical framework approach provides the participant with relevant and effective tools to assess and understand a broad range of techniques to measure and evaluate progress over time.

The Monitoring and Evaluation programme aims to strengthen capacity in management, monitoring and evaluation. It’s a response to government’s demand for personnel who can accurately measure outputs and outcomes of its interventions as a way of enhancing evidence-based decision-making.


 10 days.


The course is the meant for Government officials and Development advisors involved in the design, implementation, management and oversight of national and sector plans, budgets, programs and projects.  Programme managers; Program staff in charge of monitoring governance projects; practitioners working in civil society organizations, governmental agencies involved with M&E and those interested in M&E.
