Monitoring & Evaliuation Accountability and Learning (MEAL) Online Certificate Course

Monitoring & Evaluation Accountability and Learning
Monitoring represents an on-going activity to track project progress against planned tasks. Evaluation can be defines as a structured process of assessing the success of a project in meeting its goals and to reflect on the lessons learned An evaluation should be structured so that there is some thought and intent as to what is to be captured, how best to capture it, and what the analysis of the captured data will tell us about our program Therefore Monitoring, evaluation, accountability, and learning (MEAL) are a daily part of programmes management. They are the critical components to the success of all Projects, including those operating in fragile contexts. Without an effective MEAL system we would be unable to track progress, make adjustments, discover unplanned effects of programmes, or judge the impact that we have made on the lives of those with whom we are working. A MEAL system also helps us to be accountable to our stakeholders through information sharing and developing a complaints or feedback mechanism which can help to guide programme implementation.
