Definition - What is it
Monitoring and evaluation is particularly important because it helps to understand the community perception of the programme, and its effects on non-beneficiary groups. Livelihood programmes can affect and even more can be affected by the market chain, the market environment or the key infrastructure, services and inputs. Therefore market monitoring, particularly price monitoring, should happen regularly.
Logic in the TOOLBOX
The Monitoring and Evalution module crosscuts all the other modules. It actually starts at the preparedness phase, with the development of a monitoring and evaluation framework and the evaluation of the preparedness plan and goes until the practitioner defines a logical framework with response-specific indicators.
