Conventional monitoring & evaluation (M&E) traditionally focuses on measuring performance against pre-set indicators, using standardised procedures and tools. Though valuable, these techniques are not be able to fully answer whether an activity or programme has made a difference in beneficiaries’ lives, and how different parties involved perceive the outcomes of programme activities.

A growing emphasis on participatory approaches in all stages of development work, illustrates recognition of the importance of involving the community’s voice. For M&E, this means engaging the community in the M&E process: building the capacity of community members to become active partners, sharing their opinions and experiences. This approach broadens the notion of accountability: fulfilling the terms and conditions of the funding organisations receive (upward accountability), but also fulfilling the needs and goals of the communities they serve (downward accountability).

To increase the engagement of the community in M&E activities, more and more innovative participatory approaches have emerged. Examples are the Most Significant Change (MSC) technique, using storytelling; visual methods such as Participatory Video (PV) and Photovoice; and a combination of video and MSC: PVMSC.

For those interested to know more about these participatory M&E techniques to integrate and support their M&E approach, RISE and ResultsinHealth (RiH) are organising a half-day workshop:

b. Participatory Video (PV), using digital
