Program development is ongoing and continuous process. Each educational initiatives bring about the desirable change In the initial situation. Monitoring and evaluation can help an organization extract relevant information from the past and ongoing activities in order to forcast and fine tuning with future planning. Planning is considered to be the corner stone upon which the program is built in future. Without effective planning, monitoring and evaluation it would be impossible to judge if work is going on in the right direction and with the desired speed. The importance of planning can be judged with a satement "if ypu fail to plan means you plan to fail". Equally important is an understanding the inter linkages and deficiencies between planning monitoring and evaluation. Monitoring and evaluation should be an integral part of program design and implementation. Monitoring and evaluation is a way of systematically measuring and tracking program activities and results. It is aften viewed as something only done by researchers or to satisfy the donors but all program managers conduct monitoring and evaluation to some degree. The data derived from monitoring and evaluattion are also critically important for the ongoing improvement and eventually optimization of the program. Finally it bolsters transparency and demonstrates good governance of the program.

We hope that publication of this book will help the reaers to be even more clearer about the higher level achievements through the program and to develop strategies to achieve those results and ultimately to improve the advancement of human development.
