You can find several definitions for the words “monitoring” and “evaluation”. It seems important to us to precise our vision of it before engaging you in this unit.

Monitoring and evaluation : a definition





Monitoring is considered as a continuous analysis of the participatory process aimed to give facilitators and stakeholders elements to improve the process’ management (for instance realized progresses, reached objectives, budget use, etc.)

Evaluation can be defined as an analysis of the efficiency, impacts, relevance and the durability of the participatory process’ results.
The evaluation must allow learning relevant lessons for the future processes.
