Objectives of Workshop

Network and meet others outside their own day-to-day networks: expect ideas to be shared through chatting (need to make allowance for this). 

Share challenges faced and pick up good ideas from others: ‘more formal’ sharing of experiences and learning good ideas, what works where, etc.

Rapid learning from expert panel: up-front rapid presentations by key players, followed by an expert-led roundtable

Key Questions for workshop

1. Which are the most pressing policy questions that monitoring and evaluation can help to answer?

2. What are the data requirements in each instance?

3. How can this data be used / how is this data being used for effective influencing?

4. What innovations in data gathering and use can attendees report on?
