Stocktaking of M&E and Management Information Systems - Selected agricultural and rural development projects in South Asia

Stocktaking of M&E and Management Information Systems - Selected agricultural and rural development projects in South Asia: The study examined Word Bank and IFAD projects with emerging good practices in M&E, learning and MIS.  Benefits were stronger where greater emphasis was given to M&E as a management tool, where a number of tools were use to provide a more holistic picture of progress, and used to strengthen downward accountability. Nevertheless a key finding is that the project M&E quality cannot be achieved through addressing methodological and technical issues alone, but must consider a wider range of institutional, human resource and motivational factors. The study provides recommendations by messages for different stakeholders.
