Monitoring and evaluation: an urban project case study in Kenya
MetadataShow full item record
Monitoring and evaluation is a key activity in systematic development planning. This case study of a large urban project in Nairobi, Kenya, looks at ways in which evaluation data and methods can be useful in an on-going process of decision-making. Several management tools, including interpretive structural modelling, delta charts, and an issue format for reporting, were used to organize a complex interdisciplinary research design and follow-up action. Using the principle of monitoring and evaluation by objective, a number of COllaborating agencies participated in research and survey design and interpretation of results. Data collection and analysis, organized by objectives, was presented in three reports per year and emerging issues at the level of day-to-day management, project planning, and policy review and formulation, were identified for discussion. Key issues of substance and method are touched upon. The study spanned the years 1976 to 1980.
