Results-Based Management (RBM) and Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) are essential frameworks in relief, humanitarian, and development work, ensuring accountability, efficiency, and effectiveness. By focusing on measurable outcomes and continuous monitoring, RBM/M&E enable organizations to optimize resources, track progress, and adapt strategies in real-time, ultimately leading to more impactful interventions.

Embracing RBM/M&E empowers organizations to:

  • Demonstrate tangible results
  • Enhance program quality
  • Maximize the positive impact on the communities they serve

Designed for project managers, relief / humanitarian / development workers, and Monitoring and Evaluation staff, this program will equip you with the knowledge and tools needed to design and monitor projects that deliver measurable results.


CONNECTING THEORY TO REAL CHANGE: Apply the Results-Based Management (RBM) philosophy and principles to drive impactful development results. Learn practical strategies for translating concepts into measurable, positive change within relief, humanitarian and community development initiatives.

DESIGNING PROJECTS THAT DELIVER: Utilize the Logical Framework Approach (LFA) to streamline project design, monitoring, and evaluation processes. Learn techniques for creating project frameworks that align with objectives and support effective implementation.

PLANNING FOR M&E: Integrate Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) planning to track progress towards results effectively.

All topics are supported by frequent, clear, practical examples and case studies from relief, humanitarian and development work.
