Module 5 'Strategy
considers monitoring and evaluation as a mechanism for reviewing and assessing LED strategies, programs and projects. Monitoring and evaluation can strengthen the LED strategy making process by highlighting the need for improvements in strategy design and program implementation. The module explores monitoring and evaluation as a means of tracking and measuring the progress of strategy development and project implementation, and considers the design and use of performance monitoring indicators to determine progress towards achieving LED strategy and project outputs.
The module demonstrates how performance monitoring indicators can contribute to the process of LED program and project delivery, and provides an understanding of how to select appropriate indicators and targets to measure outputs and progress in meeting LED strategy aims. The module serves as a guide on how to initiate a monitoring and evaluation system during the LED strategy planning and implementation phase. The module aims to develop participant understanding of selecting outcomes for LED activities, selecting indicators and targets, designing an LED monitoring and evaluation system, and planning for a review and evaluation of the LED strategy.
Module 5 concludes with a series of planning for implementation tasks that include establishing an institutional framework for LED monitoring and evaluation, designing and determining a monitoring and evaluation strategy, and determining an appropriate monitoring and evaluation reporting mechanism. Participants are also tasked with selecting informed and relevant outcomes for monitoring and evaluation, selecting appropriate indicators and targets to measure LED outcomes, planning the evaluation, and revising the LED strategy to reflect monitoring and evaluation results.
