About the webinar

We regret to inform you that today’'s session Participatory M&E: Open Discussion is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances affecting our guest panelists.

We thank you for your understanding and we look forward seeing you in future Webinar.

This Webinar is a one-hour open session ideal for Monitoring and Evaluation professionals who wish to participate in a discussion around participatory Monitoring and Evaluation.

Following the first part on Participatory M&E, a Panel Discussion with Ms Naomi Falkenburg and Ms Mercy Owuor and an increased interest in starting a dialogue among practitioners, the ActivityInfo team is hosting a second session with the two panelists to address questions on the topic and to listen to stories and challenges from practitioners.

The Webinar will revolve around the themes of the first session but will be more interactive.
