What is the best way to know if your program is being implemented effectively and having a positive impact on stakeholders?
Through a theory of change, development programs designers articulate the inputs and expected outcomes of included activities. To be confident that substantial allocated funds are disbursed in a proper way, you need to regularly track program activities so that they are implemented and results are delivered as envisaged in the program plans and logical frameworks.
Monitoring allows you to define target indicators, track and document results, and on this basis to direct decision-making and learning processes. You can use the data acquired through monitoring for further program evaluation.
