TRAINING: Summer School in Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation for Complex Development Programs
This is the Ninth edition of the University of Bologna joint Centre for International Development / Department of Economics Summer Training Programme on Monitoring and Evaluation. This year the programme's focus is on Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation for Complex Development Programmes. This is a a cutting-edge Intensive Training Course of excellence that addresses the challenges posed to planning, monitoring and evaluation (PM&E) in substantially complex development situations characterized by a changing environment and unpredictable results. In innovative projects and programs of development and social change, at the time of strategic planning often it is difficult, if not impossible, to predetermine what specific, measurable actions need to be taken or what will results will be achieved. In spite of the uncertainty, multiple, interacting actors and factors create many options for intervening, measuring and learning.
To meet this challenge, the course presents four tools and approaches delivered in two separate modules for 5 days of training, each:
- Outcome Mapping and Outcome Harvesting - September 1-5
- Results-Based Monitoring and Impact Evaluation - September 8-12
Deadline: March 31, 2014
