by CEDA. The programme facilitator was Dr Johan Olivier of Inkwazi Consulting. The course was designed to introduce development practitioners to the theory and practice of Monitoring and Evaluation.  It assumed that participants had no or limited knowledge of Monitoring and Evaluation.  Since Monitoring and Evaluation is an integral part of established project management practice, the course therefore located Monitoring and Evaluation within the broader discipline of project management.

 

The programme was highly interactive and involved participants working in groups and making group presentations under the technical guidance of the facilitator.
