The African Academy for Professionals (AAP) is glad to present a new training on learning MONITORING AND EVALUATION FOR FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION PROGRAMS TRAINING for Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), businesses & public institutions) and individuals interested in these skills.
MONITORING AND EVALUATION FOR FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION PROGRAMS TRAINING
Food Security refers to a situation where all people at all times have both physical and economic access to sufficient food to meet their dietary needs for a productive and healthy life. Achieving food security requires that the aggregate availability of physical supplies of food is sufficient and that households have adequate access to those food supplies through their own production, market or other sources, and that the utilization of those food supplies is appropriate to meet the specific dietary needs of individuals. This requires a rigorous process of studying and analyzing these conditions – often a monitoring and evaluation task
Food security and nutrition monitoring &/or evaluation is defined as a process of monitoring, analysis, and interpretation of indicators and causal factors associated with household food security and nutrition, in order to make appropriate decisions that will lead to effective interventions to improve the food security and nutritional status of the population.
The specific information requirements in any M&E system depend on the decision-making needs of the various individuals who have a stake in the program’s outcome. Food-assisted programs typically have developed very effective monitoring systems to use in tracking program inputs, processes, and outputs; as well as evaluation criteria to use to assess the overall performance of such programs.
WHY THIS M&E FOR FSN COURSE?
Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems are key instruments for strategic and operational management of food assisted programs and organizations worldwide are adopting its use because of the results it yields throughout the entire program. For example field staffs typically require continuous information on stocks, demand for services and trends in beneficiary-level conditions to plan and make necessary adjustments to their activities. Program managers also require information for basic supervision and accountability requirements, program planning, and design, as well as internal resource allocation decisions concerning food security and nutrition.
In most programs, reminiscent and easily understandable information is required for advocacy and policy making purposes which may affect important changes in donor policies or to lobby for expanded program funding. Donors also require information to inform their own strategic planning and resource allocation decisions. All these require a robust monitoring and evaluation implementation in the program. M&E responsible persons and those accountable to the process have to demonstrate proficiency in their work.
OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE
To enable participants learn the importance of timeliness of data generated for M&E v To facilitate proper analyzing and reporting of data in food and nutrition security v To assess the impact of these interventions with regard to improvements in food security and nutrition. v To have new insights in the principles of participatory and learning-oriented planning monitoring and evaluation in food and nutrition security v To strength participants’ competence in designing an M&E-system including assessments for food and nutrition security programs and/or projects v To have clear ideas for improving M&E systems and impact assessments for food and nutrition security.
