Effective policies need to be based on evidence about their results and about the right course of their implementation. M&E systems are a critical component for evidence-based policymaking.
The course touched on concepts, tools, data collection, and institutional incentives to support and sustain monitoring and evaluation systems. It explored different types of country M&E systems, the common challenges being resolved to achieve operational success and learn how to carry out M&E diagnostics to better tailor their technical assistance to countries.
