1. Aims of Monitoring and Evaluation
These two distinct processes have a common purpose: to track progress and analyse results. This information should be widely shared, and used to guide current and future programmes.
2. Conducting Evalutions and Reviews
Evaluation is a process to assess either completed or ongoing activities to determine the extent to which they are achieving stated objectives and to contribute to decision-making. There are two different categories: evaluation and review. The difference between these two exercises is dependent on the degree of independence of the person(s) undertaking the assessment, as well as the scope of the assessment.
3. Audits for Accountability
Audits are an integral part of sound financial and administrative management, and of the UNDP accountability framework.
