WHY MONITOR AND EVALUATE?

Monitoring and evaluation serve several purposes. In the absence of effective monitor-
ing and evaluation, it would be difficult to know whether the intended results are being
achieved as planned, what corrective action may be needed to ensure delivery of the
intended results, and whether initiatives are making positive contributions towards
human development. Monitoring and evaluation always relate to pre-identified results
in the development plan. They are driven by the need to account for the achievement
of intended results and provide a fact base to inform corrective decision making. They
are an essential management tool to support the UNDP commitment to accountability
for results, resources entrusted to it, and organizational learning. Furthermore, both
feed into the overall programme management processes and make an essential contri-
bution to the ability to manage for development results.22
