Description:

This report presents the main findings of a joint FAO Investment Centre and World Bank stocktaking of monitoring, evaluation and learning (ME&L) and management information systems (MIS) in selected agricultural and rural development (ARD) projects in South Asia. The stocktaking is based on case studies of eight ARD projects in India (six World Bank-assisted, two IFADassisted) 3, an electronic survey of World Bank-assisted ARD projects in the region, and a desk review of project reports and relevant literature. The stocktaking was initiated at a three-day Inception Workshop in New Delhi (October 2009), held in conjunction with the stocktaking of livelihood and water management projects in India. Key questions brought out at the Inception Workshop were: what ME&L approaches, methodologies and processes best serve projects in achieving results; and how to combine MIS and ME&L systems to ensure their usefulness for project management.
