Planning & Evaluation Tools
Ideally, you should start thinking about M&E as soon as you have your idea for your project. You can then build it in at the conceptualisation, implementation and evaluation stages.
But how do you design a project in a way that takes account of future M&E needs. Some of the key planning tools are now explored:
DFID (2018), Planning an Evaluation
UNDP (2009), Handbook on Planning, Monitoring and Evaluating for Development Results
Oxford School of Geography (2014), A Step by Step Guide to M&E
