About the Book :

This book offers a complete package for participatory monitoring and evaluation. The suggested tools for both qualitative (to know how and why of the project implementation) and quantitative methods (to know what, who, where, how many, how much of a phenomenon), pass the test of internal and external validity of the evaluation process. Participatory approaches like Participatory Impact Monitoring and Assessment (PIMA) and Logical Framework Approach (LFA) have great value for academicians, practitioners and administrators. Step-by-step detailing of planning and implementation of Farmers Field School (FFS) and Participatory Technology Development (PTD) is just the right reference material for agricultural development agencies, researchers and students. Finally, for the programme implementers who are perplexed to know what is or is not working and why, the Grounded theory may show the way.
