This is to invite you to a World class programme on Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E). Project Evaluation and Monitoring is the regular collection and occasional analysis of information to identify and possibly measure changes over a period of time. In a Country like ours, where lots of Projects are moribund and eventually abandoned; where successive government rebudget and revalue public projects for the benefit of the people at huge cost and where the people through their representatives and Civil Society complain generally of wastages of public funds on multiple budgeting or abandonment of public projects. We at ECOLAB in our usual annual style recommend to the government, the need for improvement in our knowledge of M&E to support the completion of these various on going or revaluated projects.

COURSE BENEFIT

M&E is germane to every level of government, the importance cannot be over emphasized. It can be to assess project results or to find out if and how objectives are being met and are resulting in desired changes. Also to improve management and process planning; to better adopt the contextual and risk factor such as social and power dynamics that affects research process. To also promote learning; to identify lesson of general applicability, to learn how different approaches to work participation affects outcomes, impact and reach. Lastly, to learn what impact and what does not. M&E is social, practical, advance and responsibly necessary in all works of life.

COURSE METHODOLOGY

This course is highly participatory, interactive and energizing. Other methods which will be employed to develop the training include brainstorming, plenary discussions, demonstrations, group work and presentation. Participants are encouraged to participate and share case-studies of experience from their work places.

COURSE FOCUS

The focus of the course will be on National Growth and Development. Attention of participants shall be drawn to World examples of the developed world and reminiscences of good aptitude and monitoring attitude by all to public work – The essence of good governance.

The M&E Training program could be the key to support the Government efforts at completing abandoned works and projects.

The M&E knowledge is vast and not just peculiar to projects but could be necessarily applicable and applied to all services in all Sectors.
