Course Background

Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (MEAL) are part of everyday programme management which have been identified to be critical success factors of all projects. Funding organizations are increasingly seeking more accountability for the funds they provide to development projects. Therefore, without an effective MEAL system, it would be difficult to track progress, discover unplanned effects of programmes, make judgments, or judge the impacts the undertaken project will have on the target audience. Thus, HumanitarianGobal.com has developed an Online Diploma Programme in MEAL that contains learning modules that have been developed to help development and relief professionals measure their project progress and impacts more effectively. This programme consists of four modules which are designed to address the needs of busy professionals and have been made accessible through an e-learning platform. All topics have been created through the assembling of learning assets that include illustrations, interactive activities, text, downloadable resources and references and knowledge checks.
