12 Components of a Monitoring and Evaluation System
According to Marelize Görgens and Jody Zall Kusek (2009), there are twelve components of a functioning M&E system (see image below).
As you can see, Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) plans (number 4) are just one aspect of the M&E system. Likewise, a M&E system is much broader than a document with a matrix and columns labelled 'indicators, baseline' etc.
I am hosting a workshop on Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) system to go more in-depth on Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) systems. The workshop that will take place on 31 August 2023 at 18:00h CEST.
Topics to be covered include:
Defining a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) system
Steps to set up a M&E system
Considerations for the M&E system (M&E Plan, Human Resources, indicator development, baseline collection, data storage, roles and responsibilities etc.)
How to have a 'light' M&E system if there are resource constraints (e.g. M&E capacity within staff is low)
The workshop is via Zoom and will be participatory with breakout sessions and group work.
The workshop is free for members of the M&E Academy.
Not a member but still wish to be part of the workshop? Sign up for the M&E Academy now and secure your spot at this workshop.
Other benefits of being a member of the Academy are:
Automatic registration for other monthly workshops (which occur every last Thursday of the month). This is 12 workshops.
Access to M&E resources such as publications and downlownable infographics
the opportunity to have your questions answered by both myself and other experts in the industry.
The Academy is reasonably priced at just 29 euros for the year so that the cost is not a barrier to access.
