Training workshop on Monitoring and Evaluation, Amman, July 2010

Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is an important component of any research project. The ICARDA-led Integrated pest management and organic fertilization project for date palm and wheat in Iraq is no exception. A training workshop on M&E was held at ICARDA’s regional office in Amman, Jordan, 24-28 July. The workshop was co-sponsored by the International Fund for Agricultural Development. Twelve participants (six men, six women) learnt the principles involved, developed an M&E matrix for the project, and became familiar with the tools they would use.

Eng. Taghrid Lahham, IFAD’s Iraq country program manager, and Dr Nasri Haddad Coordinator of ICARDA’s West Asia Regional Program, both highlighted the importance of M&E within the project structure. The aim is to harmonize M&E guidelines among the different institutions involved in the project, and to help ensure – and document – the impact of the project on rural livelihoods.
