      Participatory Monitoring And Evaluation Methods


      ‘Participation’ has become a critical concept in development. Donors, governments and iNGOs are insisting upon participatory approaches in assessing needs and in implementing programmes. With increased emphasis on the importance of participation in development, there is a growing recognition that monitoring and evaluation of development and other community-based initiatives should be participatory.
