Monitoring and Evaluation News

Monitoring and Evaluation News - The focus of this website is on methods of monitoring and evaluating the progress and outcomes of development aid programs, big and small. But many of the methods discussed here are also relevant to the practice of evaluation when applied to policies and programs implemented by government and civil society organisations in richer countries, not just countries receiving international aid.

International Development Research Centre

The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is a Crown corporation created by the Parliament of Canada in 1970 to help developing countries use science and technology to find practical, long-term solutions to the social, economic, and environmental problems they face. Its support is directed toward creating a local research community whose work will build healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous societies.

It's mission is empowerment through knowledge

  • It funds applied research by researchers in developing countries on the problems they identify as crucial to their communities. Most supported projects result from direct exchanges between the Centre and developing-country institutions.
  • It provides expert advice to those researchers.
  • It builds local capacity in developing countries to undertake research and innovate.



PovertyNet provides an introduction to key issues as well as in-depth information on poverty measurement, monitoring, analysis, and on poverty reduction strategies for researchers and practitioners.

The website is part of the World Bank website. It provides an understanding of the nature of poverty, ways of measuring and mapping it as well as ways of addressing it.
