Evaluation of the monitoring and evaluation system used by GTZ for a development project
September 2007, Afghanistan

Groupe URD carried out an evaluation of a monitoring and evaluation unit specifically set up by GTZ (German institutional donor) for a poverty reduction project.

The Project for Alternative Livelihoods (PAL) was set up by GTZ in Jalalabad. Its objective was to reduce poverty and facilitate the transition from an economy based on the production of opium to one based on alternatives.
A specific monitoring and evaluation unit was set up to monitor the progress of the different parts of the project.

GTZ asked Groupe URD to carry out an evaluation of this unit, with the following objectives:

  • To identify the strengths and weaknesses of the existing system
  • To draw up indicators to monitor the quality of projects
  • To make recommendations for changes to make the system more consistent and effective.

Interviews were carried out in the provinces of Nangahar, Laghman and Kunar.

The project report is not available to the public.
