Result-Based Monitoring and Evaluation of Agricultural Projects Training

Recently, there has been a realization that agriculture and in particular the viability and sustainability of smallholder farming can be a key to not only improving food security status but also reducing poverty. Monitoring and evaluation helps track agricultural project performance at any given time and provides reasons for an observed project status. In addition, understanding how approaches in Monitoring and Evaluation can be modified or enhanced to optimize positive impact on the intended beneficiaries is important.
