Chapter 8. Enhancing the use of knowledge from monitoring and evaluation

Benefits of using information from monitoring and evaluation are multiple. The value of a monitoring and evaluation exercise is determined by the degree to which the information is used by intended decision makers and a wider audience. This chapter is intended to help UNDP managers, programme and project staff, M&E specialists, and communications officers in UNDP and partner organizations effectively apply information from monitoring and evaluation in their daily work for accountability, improvements in performance, decision making and learning. It addresses examples of the use of evaluative evidence, available tools and means for effective knowledge and information sharing, and practical guidance to support publication and dissemination of evaluation information.
