Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes
Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is an area which many want to see strengthened. When working with a diverse range of objectives, agendas, audiences and mechanisms for community and public engagement it can be a challenge to identify the most fitting approach.
In this space we bring together reflections on some of the theory and lessons from the practical implementation of M&E in our work as well as useful evaluation resources.
