ADPC, Thailand collaborate with Channel Research, Belgium to conduct the 1st training on Monitoring and Evaluation in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Unstable Environments (MEDRR-1) from 29 November - 3 December 2010 in Bangkok, Thailand.
The Regional Training on Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Unstable Environments is the training course under the collaboration between Channel Research, an expert organization on monitoring and evaluation consultancy with headquarter in Belgium and the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), a long-standing regional organization devoting to the area of disaster management. The course aims to provide fundamental knowledge on the framework for designing monitoring systems and evaluation processes and covers methodologies and tools for participants to commission, manage, carry out and apply evaluations on programs and projects in disaster risk reduction and unstable environments.
The course comprises of the following six modules: Module 1: Introduction to the training course To introduce the course objectives, review participants’ expectations and build common understanding between participants and facilitators along the line with the overall course objectives Module 2: Disaster Risk Reduction and Unstable Environments To provide basic understanding of concepts on disaster risk reduction and other unstable environments Module 3: Analytical Monitoring & Evaluation To identify needs and scope of M&E, M&E methodologies and tools including the development of indicators and application on real work scenarios through case studies Module 4: Monitoring & Evaluation Frameworks To familiarize participants with M&E framework concepts, basic processes and procedures in designing workable M&E mechanism, discuss sensitivity, learning and accountabilities and challenges in designing M&E frameworks Module 5: Particularities of M&E in specific fields To learn how to design and apply M&E tools in specific fields such as DRR and unstable environments through different projects and case studies and address management of evaluations Module 6: Collection and Analysis of evidence in M&E To address the process of data selection, collection, analysis and dissemination in M&E Module 7: Course Closure To summarize the learning of the course and verify if learning objectives have been achieved Course Fee:
