Who should attend

The program is intended for public sector managers, planners, program analysts, accountants and auditors in ministries responsible for finance and economic planning, as well as sector ministries and field agencies engaged in planning, implementation and evaluation of development programs. The program content is also beneficial for professionals in NGOs, development banks and donor agencies.

About the course

Effective monitoring and evaluation of programs remains both a challenge and priority in developing and emerging economies. It is a key element for successful planning and implementation of development programs in sectors such as health, education, agriculture, rural and urban development, and municipal services.

The two-week program on Monitoring and Evaluation of Development Programs (M&EDP) helps participants learn the key steps and analytical tools to design and monitor programs and develop an analytical framework to evaluate their performance and outcomes.

Topics

In the M&EDP program, you will:

  • Learn how to integrate planning, monitoring and evaluation together leading to results-based management
  • Identify indicators, collect necessary data and resources, and develop an appropriate framework applicable to development programs
  • Identify and involve stakeholders and partners in joint monitoring and evaluation processes and develop key steps in decentralized evaluations
  • Employ cost benefit and cost effectiveness analysis and develop socio-economic performance indicators for social sector programs
  • Learn innovative techniques for valuing public program outputs and outcomes
  • Develop sector-specific analytical frameworks for sectors such as health, education, agriculture, water and sanitation, rural and urban development, transportation, and municipal services
  • Explore techniques using Excel to conduct and estimate the impact of real life programs including the underlying statistical theory and tools such as sampling, distributions, power and logic of randomized trials
  • Identify and plan for M&E institutional architecture - such as human resources and capacity building - within public sector organizations
