Monitor and evaluate

How to implement

  • Develop an evaluation plan with measurable outcomes and clear timelines, responsibilities and guidelines. Ideally, this plan should be developed early, but it can still be adapted throughout the program lifecycle.
  • Continuously monitor and evaluate to examine success, feasibility, impact and sustainability:
    • Research and evaluation outcomes should guide future directions and planning activities (e.g., collect participant feedback to guide program content and delivery and to gain insight into why they participate).
    • Seek financial and/or human resource support from public, private, voluntary and community organizations to support evaluation. 
  • Communicate findings to key stakeholders in a way that is tailored to their specific interests.
  • Share best practices and lessons-learned to facilitate learning and celebrate successes.
