Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning courses 2019
"Learning & Staying Alive To Change"
This course is about demystifying PMEL as a technical exercise - done to satisfy donor needs – so that it can be better understood, appreciated and used. We promote learning orientated M&E because we believe that if M&E contributes to organisational learning and adaptation you will produce better and more sustainable impact. By attending this course, you will gain greater clarity on what learning- oriented PMEL may look like for your organisation and how this could be implemented.
Dates for 2019 are as follows:
Harare, Zimbabwe 13-17 May
Jo’burg, South Africa 3-7 June
Nairobi, Kenya 15-19 July
Cape Town, South Africa 14-18 Oct
