CDI course: Planification et suivi-évaluation participatifs - Gestion orientée vers l’impact (GOI)

06-10-2014 - 16-10-2014

Dans nos interventions de développement, nous avons souvent besoin d’une approche de gestion flexible, adaptative et qui prend en compte les interactions entre acteurs. Cette approche doit nous aider à naviguer dans un environnement complexe et évolutif et nous permettre d’améliorer l’impact de nos actions ainsi que de renseigner et utiliser nos résultats au travers d’un système de suivi-évaluation axés sur l’apprentissage. Le cours en planification et suivi-évaluation – gestion orientée vers l’impact offert par le Centre pour le Développement et l’Innovation de l’Université de Wageningen, l’Institut Supérieur des Sciences de la Population et l’Association Africaine d’Evaluation veut répondre à ces besoins.
