What is Monitoring and Evaluation?
Monitoring is about collecting information that will help you
answer questions about your project. It is important that this
information is collected in a planned, organised and routine way.
You can use the information you gather to report on your project
and to help you evaluate.
Evaluation is about using monitoring and other information you
collect to make judgements about your project. It is also about
using the information to make changes and improvements.
