Course Description

Outcome mapping (OM) is a methodology for planning, monitoring and evaluating development initiatives in order to bring about sustainable social change. This workshop addresses the challenges of planning, monitoring and evaluation (PM&E) in projects characterized by a changing environment, fully engaged actors, and a degree of unpredictability in the results.
