Southern Hemisphere’s Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting for Development Projects course will be run in Cape Town on 7 – 11 March 2016.  I have attached the registration form which is due on 19 February 2016.  We hope that you will join us on this very popular training course or pass the info on to others who may benefit.  We are also offering the PME course in NAMIBIA 16 – 20 May.

The objective of this course in planning, monitoring and evaluation is to equip development practitioners with the knowledge and expertise to be able to conduct their own planning, monitoring, evaluation and reporting or to be able to guide project partners in doing so.
 
The course aims to increase the capacity of the development sector to deliver project outcomes that are efficient and effective, and to be able to measure and evaluate these outcomes.
 
The course will provide a space for development practitioners to learn from each other by sharing knowledge and experiences.
