PLAN: Start


A Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) plan is important to determine if a programme is effective and defines what needs to be assessed and which information is important to gather. M&E plans are best developed during the design phase of the programme as good evaluations rely on strong data, systematically collected. Don’t be anxious if you do not have an M&E plan yet; just develop one that works for you as soon as possible. The adjacent steps have been set out in a logical order to help you do this, but feel free to jump around and look at different aspects of M&E planning in the way that works for you.
