What Works, What Doesn't, and Why: A Discussion with Partners on Operational Issues with M&E
USAID and partners very much share the responsibility for accomplishing monitoring and evaluation. Most of "USAID's" performance monitoring work is done by our implementing partners. Most of our evaluations are done by outside contractors as well. The purpose of this session is to talk together about what makes it hard to do this work well? What can we learn from each other that will allow us to do this better?
Since this is such a rich area for discussion, we plan to use this initial session to brainstorm topics and then structure a way forward to discussing these important issues. It is our expectation that this could lead to series of meetings or online discussions. But first lets see what we all think is important.
