This session aimed to provide an overview of current approaches to designing project monitoring and evaluation (M&E) in Social Fund operations, as well as an opportunity for hands-on practice defining project objectives and indicators and a related results strategy.  TTLs often face practical challenges in identifying project development objectives and performance measures that are relevant to larger country and sector contexts, and come time for project evaluation at implementation completion.  The session also reflected on the role of project-level M&E in larger country and sector performance management contexts. Participants had an opportunity to test their skills in developing a monitoring and evaluation framework for a specific project, using a case study format.  The session closed with a review of lessons learned from the case practicum.
