IFRC's Project/programme monitoring and evaluation (M&E) guide
The purpose of this guide is to promote a common understanding and reliable practice of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) for IFRC project/programmes. It is meant to be a desktop reference that supplements the more concise and field-friendly IFRC PMER Pocket Guide. Therefore, this guide is not intended to be read from cover to cover; the reader can refer to specific topics for more detail when needed.
This guide does not provide detailed guidance on conducting evaluations; this is provided in separate IFRC resources.1 Instead, emphasis is placed on establishing and implementing a project/programme monitoring and related reporting system. However, as evaluation is integrally linked to monitoring, an overview of evaluation is included for planning evaluation events within the overall M&E system.
