4.2.5 Develop a M&E plan and tools

  • Developing a M&E plan during the contracting/start-up stage ensures the partner is well aware of the M&E standards and obligations.
  • Agree on key indicators, data tracking sheets and reporting requirements.
  • Keep M&E light, simple and easy to use! Focus on getting essential M&E data only. Complicated tools and heavy M&E protocols are not suitable for emergencies. This can cause delay in program implementation by overburdening the partner with paper work.
