    •  Hello

      I am Raoudha from Tunisia, I thank you all for such important and constructive sharing, in the same vein, I think that the question of monitoring and evaluation should take into account both the quantitative and qualitative aspects. Of course, the quantitative aspect only makes sense if it goes hand in hand with the qualitative aspect, and this process can lead to results that are capable of identifying the lessons learned from the evaluation exercise because I think that evaluation is not really an objective in itself but rather a means of learning in order to rectify, adjust, revise and improve. By evaluating we are supposed to learn.

  • Challenges of evaluation

    • Hello from Tunisia,
       
      Thank you very much, dear colleagues, for these rich and fruitful exchanges. I think that one of the major constraints of evaluation is the evaluation culture itself when it is not really well anchored. Most of the time we are satisfied with a self-assessment that is not based on a scientific basis and does not meet or only partly meets international evaluation standards. We need to be convinced that the evaluation will allow us either to adjust the direction to resume the right path or to continue on the same path that is the right one, and in both cases it will allow us to move forward. This will lead us to the second constraint that hinders evaluation, namely the personalization of the project or program. Indeed the person who is the leader of the project (I am talking about public institutions) does not accept that, supposedly, his project is evaluated because he believes that this evaluation will affect his credibility and this is really a big problem that goes back to the question of the evaluation culture.
