Chapter 3, Module 3: Conflict-sensitive monitoring and evaluation

Brief Summary

Purpose of module

To help the reader to design and implement a monitoring and evaluation system that captures the interaction between project and context, and to identify relevant indicators to monitor this interaction. The monitoring system should seek to measure the impact of the intervention on the changing context and vice versa, and to enable programming to be adjusted if necessary to ensure optimum conflict sensitivity. The evaluation system should seek to identify lessons for improving conflict-sensitive planning and implementation in the future.
