Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting & Learning in Peacebuilding Course; 20th to 24th April 2020, Nairobi, Kenya

April 20 @ 8:00 am - April 24 @ 5:00 pm

Event Navigation

Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting and Learning (MERL) is an integral part of all interventions. When effectively done, MERL makes it easy to articulate a project’s theory of change, determine if the implementation schedule is still on course and if desired results are being achieved. It also enables programme staff to easily draw lessons from what is working and recommend appropriate measures for what isn’t working.

Though MERL is beneficial, many organizations and project staffs shy away from it particularly because they see it as technical in nature. In peacebuilding programs, there is fear of negative appraisals using conventional monitoring and evaluation methods and approaches. In spite of this, it is important for peacebuilding programs staff to be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills that would in turn allow them to effectively engage in MERL.

Course Objectives

  1. Introduce participants to MERL from a peacebuilding perspective
  2. Enhance participants understanding of the various contextual tools of analysis applied in MERL
