About the webinar

This Webinar is a one-hour session ideal for Monitoring and Evaluation professionals who are interested in inclusive M&E activities and data collection.

During the session, we discuss with the two speakers, Ms. Naomi Falkenburg and Mr. Alex Bertram, the following questions:

  • What is inclusion and how can we capture inclusion concerns in the baseline to support inclusion in practice?
  • What are inclusive indicators? Why would we use them, and how?
  • How does an information system actually help reach our goals of being more inclusive in our programming? Does it have a real impact for the people on the ground?
  • What are the risks of not disaggregating data?
  • What kind of categories of disaggregated data should we keep in mind, and how should we decide which to use?
  • What can we do when not all partners have breakdowns available?
  • How can an information system work with qualitative data as well as quantitative data?
  • What is the value of affected communities participating in M&E? How can we encourage participation? .

Please take a look at this Guide on inclusive M&E data collection systems for further reading. You can also access the French version of this Guide.
