Set Aside Resources for Programme Monitoring and Evaluation

Every safe cities for women programme, activity, initiative or project needs requires human, financial, technological and information resources for monitoring and evaluation. Monitoring and evaluation are very important for ensuring that the work that programme partners do is successful and sustainable. However, in many instances such resources, including the capacity to carry out the analysis, are not readily available. Such capacity includes the skills and experience to assess one’s own actions in a disinterested way, and to be able to admit to shortcomings and problems as well as successes and new insights. This means that safe cities for women programme partners should plan from the beginning of any project to set aside money and experienced people for evaluation. See the monitoring and evaluation section for more information.
