Simon Hearn, Greet Peersman, Tiina Pasanen, Anne L. Buffardi, Irene Guijt, Patricia Rogers

Summary: Working and discussion paper, March 2016, Greet Peersman, Patricia Rogers, Irene Guijt, Simon Hearn, Tiina Pasanen and Anne Buffardi.

Many development programme staff experience the common problem of commissioning an impact evaluation towards the end of a programme only to find that the monitoring system failed to provide adequate data.
This guidance note looks at:

- what an impact-oriented monitoring and evaluation system entails
- why an organisation may want to establish such a system
- when integrating an impact-orientation into an monitoring and evaluation system is most useful
- what should be considered in developing the monitoring and evaluation system, or in tweaking an existing system, to become more impact-focused.
