Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting & Learning in the Peacebuilding Practice Course

INTRODUCTION

Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting and Learning (MERL) is an integral part of every intervention. When systematically done, MERL makes it easy to articulate a project’s theory of change and to determine if envisaged results are being achieved. It also enables programme staff to draw lessons from what is working and recommend appropriate measures for what is not working. Though MERL is beneficial, many organizations and project staffs shy away from it because many see it as technical in nature, others find it time consuming and yet others fear negative appraisals. In spite of this, it is important for project staff to be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills that would in turn allow them to effectively engage in MERL for the growth of their projects and their organizations.
