Post Graduate Diploma in Monitoring & Evaluation of Nutrition and Food Security Projects

Africa Training Institute is pleased to announce Post-Graduate Diploma in Monitoring & Evaluation of Nutrition and Food Security Projects Course. This is both an online and Distance Learning Course, which starts 1st of every month.

Overall Course Overview
To achieve a world a world free of hunger as well as malnutrition, it is important to provide sustainable solutions that provide the largest impacts on development outcomes. Monitoring and evaluation tools, as well as techniques are very vital in ensuring Food Security programmes are designed, implemented as plan and that they improve the well-being of the target community. The absence of sound M&E processes in large numbers of nutrition and food security projects, despite continued evidence of their value in assessing and improving project performance, suggests that many project planners and managers may not yet have the necessary skills or understanding to develop and operate such systems.

Course Objectives
- Conceptualize, perceive, start and develop projects in a changing global environment
- Be familiar with the strategies and techniques for monitoring and evaluating projects, particularly those related to nutrition and food security;
- Be exposed to multiple international and some domestic examples of monitoring and evaluation systems, both large and small;
