INTRODUCTION: The community based development projects have been at the forefront of the efforts to bring about change in the lives of millions in our country. The efforts have been generously supported by government, private and bilateral donors. The ground realities however have not changed much. The failure to see changes in the life of people with whom we work forces us to rethink our paradigm. Government has been playing important role in changing lives of the rural people and they need to continue playing this role due to growing challenges arising out of liberalization, environmental degradation and increasing gap between poor and rich. What is needed perhaps is a close scrutiny of the way we have always been doing things. This includes taking a close look at the processes concerning the monitoring and evaluation of community based development projects, planning and implementation. The empirical evidences show that many a times the government themselves have little idea about the kind of projects they are implementing and what they have to achieve from the projects and beyond. It is with this background that we have designed a five day module that looks at the cross cutting issues related to effective monitoring and evaluation of community based development projects.
