Monitoring & Evaluation

This field-tested, six-day training curriculum responds to community development managers', program planners' and behavior change officers’ need for a practical behavioral framework that helps them with developing effective behavior change strategies in the fields of agriculture, Natural Resource Management (NRM), health, and nutrition.

CORE Group's research library is a searchable list of state-of-the-art tools, curriculums and technical resources covering multiple focus areas including Social and Behavior Change (SBC), FP, social accountability, general health and nutrition. The library was produced with multiple partner and member organizations.

The purpose of the manual is to provide basic, easy to use, and quick information across the range of topics that organizations need to be familiar with at different stages of a PHE program cycle. This manual drew on member experience with designing and implementing Population, Health and Environment (PHE) projects/programs. The manual was established in response to member and partner demands for information to help PHE practitioners implement project activities. 

The Health of People and the Environment in the Lake Victoria Basin (HoPE-LVB) toolkit is a collection of resources that was developed to promote “a complete status of well-being” of individuals and families by converging activities related to the three sectors of population, health and environment." The HoPE-LVB toolkit was created using the lessons learned and best practices from the project. 

This manual provides guidance for field-based conservation practitioners in developing countries on integrating health and family planning into community conservation projects. It is designed for those who are starting work in a new area as well as those who might be adding on a health or population component to an existing conservation project. In addition, some sections are likely to be of interest to health partners, development organizations and donors.

This toolkit is a strategic package of resources to guide program managers at implementing organizations, advocates, and decision makers through the processes of piloting, implementing, and scaling up integrated programs and advocating for policy change. These resources include: up-to-date global and country-specific background and reference materials to inform advocacy and assist with the design of evidence-based, state-of-the-art programs; job aids, curricula, and other tools to increase the effectiveness and quality of program activities and services; and, publications that detail key implementation processes and lessons learned.

The FHI 360 PROGRESS project (2008-13) added to the evidence base on multi-sector integration, providing guidance on how development organizations can successfully expand their program model to include family planning services. Working closely with partners, PROGRESS developed, implemented, and evaluated three interventions. This report synthesizes lessons learned for use in replication and scale up.

This training manual is organized around concepts of M&E for SBCC interventions with strengths and weaknesses of approaches and recommendations wherever applicable. The manual aims to strengthen efforts of SBCC interventions by building capacity to effectively monitor and evaluate intervention against desired outcomes and provide learning for SBCC strategies. This training is intended for master trainers, state program M&E officers and managers, district level officials and supervisors whose main job is to monitor SBCC interventions in their geographical area of work.
