How do you know that your sanitation and hygiene promotion is making a difference? Is your behaviour change communication having the intended results? What can be done differently to better meet objectives? These are the sorts of question that monitoring and evaluation allow you to answer.
Good intentions, effective planning, large programmes and projects, and even an abundance of financial resources are not enough to ensure that development projects will be successfully implemented. Monitoring and evaluation are essential to track whether a project is delivering against its desired outcomes. It is a process that helps us learn from past successes and make the right decisions, so that current and future initiatives are better able to improve people’s lives.
This study session will focus on monitoring and evaluation of behaviour change interventions.
