UNICEF, IOCE and DevInfo, in partnership with UNDP, WFP, UNIFEM and ILO presented a series of webinars on “Developing capacities for country M&E systems”. Authors of the published book on this subject (available at http://www.mymande.org/?q=virtual ) presented their chapter contributions and responded to questions. Dates of presentations range from June 2010 through July 2011.
This Guide is intended to assist those governments and development agencies which have decided to develop a national or sectoral evaluation system. The Guide provides a detailed checklist of issues to be considered in developing a country’s evaluation capacity. While the Guide is intended to be as comprehensive as possible, it will be necessary to adapt it to the circumstances of the country. The principal focus of the Guide is the development of a national evaluation system. In some countries such an approach might be infeasible or too expensive. In such circumstances a sectoral approach—or even one which focuses on major projects—might be judged to be more realistic, and the detailed diagnosis presented here would need to be simplified and tailored accordingly.
