Monitoring and Evaluation

Timely and reliable monitoring and evaluation (M&E) makes it possible to identify trends, strengths and areas for improvement in our work at national, regional and global level.

At IFRC, monitoring and evaluation is not just a principle, but a practice. We actively strive to build capacity throughout the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement with resources, trainings, and technical guidance and support:

  • Framework for Evaluations Guides how evaluations are planned, managed, conducted, and utilized in IFRC, ensuring that they adhere to the highest international and ethical standards and practices. (document in French | in Spanish | in Arabic | in Russian).
  • Evaluation database An internet archive of completed IFRC Secretariat-funded evaluations and related studies (i.e. baselines) for public viewing and transparency, as well as strategic planning and lesson sharing.
  • PMER Pocket Guide The purpose of this is to provide a user-friendly summary of key PMER concepts and practices for good PMER, based on the key elements of IFRC PMER guidelines (primarily the Project/Programme Planning Guide, the Project/Programme M&E Guide, and the IFRC Framework for Evaluation). (Guide in Spanish).
  • Classroom and online training on Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting 
    • A complete package of skills-based training materials is available for National Society and IFRC staff and volunteers in English, French, Spanish and Arabic – see contacts below for more information.
    • In addition to the online courses on project/programme planning and monitoring and evaluation available on the IFRC’s Learning Platform (login required) , a complete package of classroom training materials is available for National Society and IFRC staff and volunteers in English, French, Spanish and Arabic – contact us via the email below for more information.
