SGP5 holds Training on Results-based Monitoring and Evaluation

Angeles City- As part of its capacity-building activities, the GEF Small Grants Programme in the Philippines (SGP5) recently held a Training workshop on Results-based Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) from December 12-14, 2016 in Angeles City.

Atty. Rodolfo Ferdinand N. Quicho, Jr., Country Programme Manager of SGP5, welcomed the participants to the training, and highlighted the importance of the workshop in enhancing the capacities of SGP grantees to monitor and evaluate their projects as well as environmental trends.

The three-day training was participated in by 30 representatives from SGP5 grantees from its priority landscapes and seascapes areas, namely Palawan, Samar and Sierra Madre, as well as from the Biodiversity Management Bureau of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (BMB-DENR) and the Foundation for the Philippine Environment (FPE).

The training aimed to: build the capacity of the SGP5 grantees in results-based monitoring using the Technology of Change framework; adapt the existing M&E tool of SGP5 to also capture the qualitative outcomes of the projects; encourage the documentation of potential success stories as the projects progresses; and be able to gather enough stories for presentation in the SGP National Conference.

The training provided an overview of the program management cycle and qualitative and quantitative indicators, workshop on results chain for integrating qualitative indicators, and
workshop on aligning grant projects to the SGP programme (linking to project objectives and outcomes to SGP National goals and outcomes), and developing an M&E plan at the SGP and project level.

The workshop is expected to feed into the site-based training activities for Palawan, Samar, Lower Sierra Madre, and Upper Sierra Madre.
