Speaker: Inviolata Nafula, Marketing Evidence and Impact Director, Marie Stopes Kenya
What is challenging about monitoring implementation?
Inviolata Nafula: Some of the challenges during monitoring and evaluation of a program include the following lack of resources. This includes both the human time and even financial resources to effectively monitor and evaluate projects. Most projects tend to assume that data collection is equivalent to monitoring and evaluation. However, it's really different. We really need to track whatever is being collected and evaluate and be able to answer this old question. Additionally, lack of technical expertise and focuss and also goodwill from the leadership is one of the other challenges.
