Development programs mostly build on theory of change articulating inputs and expected outcomes of program activities. To be confident that allocated huge funds are disbursed in a proper way, decision makers need to regularly track program activities so that they are implemented and results are delivered as envisaged in program plans and logical frameworks. Moreover, decision makers need robust assessment of program impact on all the stakeholders.
Monitoring allows defining target indicators, tracking and documenting results, and on this basis to direct decision-making and learning processes. Data acquired through monitoring is used for further program evaluation.
Program monitoring and evaluation contribute to learning from previous experiences, improving the results in the future, assuring internal and external accountability of the resources and results obtained, making informed decisions and giving necessary information for empowering the beneficiaries.
