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:

  • INDABA Participatory Video for M&E A training package which explains the Indaba participatory video process, the various locations where it has been carried out, its different phases, and the tools and resources needed to run an Indaba participatory video initiative for baselines, monitoring, evaluation, reviews and lessons learnt in long term and/or emergency contexts.  Download the package in English or visit https://indaba.dev/
  • 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).
