Overview

Monitoring and Evaluation are integral to policy development. Done properly, they can provide objective, reliable information about the impact and effectiveness of your policies. Without them, you will have no way of assessing if your policy has been a success. This half-day seminar will look at where they fit in the policy cycle and why they are essential elements in the policy development process. It will also look at ways you can use Monitoring and Evaluation to improve existing policies and develop better ones.

Who is it designed for?

This half-day seminar has been designed for public sector and civil service managers at all levels who are involved in policy development. It can serve both as an introduction and a refresher for everyone who wishes to improve their understanding of monitoring and evaluation and its application to support better policy implementation on the ground.

How will you benefit from attending?

You will appreciate the importance of Monitoring and Evaluation, where it fits in the policy cycle, and practical guidance on how best to apply them to your policy area.
