CASE DESCRIPTION

Title case:
From Desire to The Deed: The world of difference between understanding and implementing result based planning, monitoring and evaluation in a highly qualified capacity building organisation.

Subject of the monitoring and/or evaluation:
CEFOD, the "Centre d'Etudes et de Formation pour le Développement" is a capacity building organisation with four departments:

  1. Documentation and Juridical Information (with an academic library and a juridical documentation centre);
  2. Edition and media (with a monthly "Chad et Culture" thematic publications, radio programs, videos and the organisation of public debates);
  3. Training and research (Organisation management, financial management human resources management, evaluation and planning workshops, and commissioned studies);
  4. Conference Centre (housing 2-3 meetings, workshops, seminars a day hosting on average 100 persons a day).

The goal was to introduce result based planning, monitoring and evaluation, and shifting focus in CEFOD's reporting from activities to results. CEFOD has worked on this over the last three years. It was supported in this period by MISEREOR (the main German catholic funder of development programs) consultants in a number of workshops introducing the whole process.
