In order to measure success and report on results, development workers and public-sector managers create monitoring and evaluation systems. Such systems make it possible to learn from experience and improve programme and project performance. Monitoring and evaluation is therefore an essential function for all organizations, programmes and projects, and consequently international and public-sector organizations have for several years been investing in the creation of such structures. To meet the need for specialist knowledge in this field, the ITCILO is offering an online certification programme that provides all the technical skills and tools required to ensure effective monitoring of projects and programmes, and to manage the various evaluations that are part of the programming cycle.
Monitoring and evaluation specialists; project coordinators; programme managers; independent evaluators; donor staff appraising and evaluating projects and programmes; non-governmental organization officials involved in monitoring and evaluating.
