Monitoring and Evaluation

Tracking progress and linking progress to certain interventions can only be done, if objectives have been set and indicators formulated, ie. A plan exists.


Monitoring in our context is basically the observation of programmes, projects and activities closely for the anticipated outcome to be achieved. It is tracking the progress or changes over time and in a continuous manner. This lets managers know what results are achieved.


Evaluation on the other hand attributes changes to a particular intervention. It focuses on how and why results are or are not achieved.


In the four Year MTDP period,-2006-2009 more importantly the Annual Action Plans, a systematic approach would be adopted to ensure that projects proceed in accordance with the Action Plans, that quality of work is up to standard required and inputs are on site at the appropriate time, in the right quantities and quality.


On the implementation schedule, agencies responsible for monitoring are indicated in the last columns even though it is not going to be their exclusive responsibilities. Wherever appropriate, Honorable Assembly members, Unit Committees, Traditional Authorities, Opinion Leaders, The entire communities and other agencies would be co-opted by the DPCU to assist.
