A guideline for SNV personnel and field staff in the implementation of gender-conscious monitoring and evaluation in projects and country programmes. Points of departure and pre-conditions for gender-conscious monitoring and evaluation are discussed, plus the information which needs to be collected for these procedures. The volume also contains a large number of practical instruments and techniques which can be used for gender-conscious monitoring and evaluation.
This booklet presents the initial findings to develop a methodology for participatory monitoring and evaluation. A "Village Log Book from Ambodirafia" is included and forms the focal point for the approach. The log enables project partners, including community organisations, to establish baseline data, specify project actions and record project accomplishments. This case study reports on the pilot effort to monitor progress in an agroforestry project.
