According to studies, increased monitoring and evaluation participation by beneficiary community partners and other key project stakeholders improves their understanding of the development process. Increased monitoring and evaluation capability promotes project self-sufficiency, assures the long-term viability of project activities, and leads to improved project outcomes. Enhancing project design and implementing more responsive to ground realities requires listening to and learning from program/project beneficiaries and other stakeholders.

Participation has become a critical component in development. In assessing needs, governments, international donors, implementing agencies, and NGOs insist on participatory approaches as they seek to assess community needs and project implementation strategies. An increased emphasis on the importance of participation in development has brought forth the need for a participatory-based monitoring and evaluation approach for community-based initiatives, projects, and social development projects.

Actors in participatory assessment, monitoring, and evaluation (PAM&E) work together in a collaborative framework to measure, record, gather and evaluate communication data for use in problem-solving and decision-making. As a result, project partners can identify remedial actions early in the project’s development.
