Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) are essential management processes that allow project/program managers to track the progress of project activities and capture results and value addition of the program to the development agenda. In other words, it can help an organization, including managers, verify whether the objectives and intended outcomes are being achieved, whether project activities are happening as planned, and whether resources are being used correctly and efficiently.

The Sendai Framework Monitoring under the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) (2015-2030) is a management tool to help countries develop disaster risk reduction strategies, make risk-informed policy decisions, and allocate resources to prevent new disaster risks. This monitoring framework consists of 38 indicators used to track the progress in implementing seven global targets of the SFDRR. As a result, countries also need to track or monitor the progress of the implementation of SFDRR at the national and sub-national levels.

In the context of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), M&E enables disaster management professionals to assess the progress and outcomes of implementing specific risk reduction measures and evaluate the risk reduction outcomes for other types of development and humanitarian assistance programs.

The course aims to raise the knowledge and skills of participants on M&E in DRR, particularly in designing monitoring systems and evaluation frameworks and processes to effectively manage results and learning of DRR programs and projects.
