Key Characteristics of Participatory M&E

  • Bottom-up approach
  • Emphasizes and supports shared learning of stakeholders and rights holders at various levels (local, regional, national)
  • Build capacity of local people to assess and analyze, reflect and take action
  • Consider primary stakeholders and rights holders as active participants – not objects or mere sources of information
  • Involves stakeholders and rights holders in all or most of the phases of the M&E process (the approach is designed with them)
  • Focus on the views and aspirations of community members
