Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of development projects are increasingly recognized as indispensable management functions. For many years, M&E of development projects in Bangladesh have been given little attention. Some of the main constraints and problems that hampered M&E in development project include: weak interest and commitment to the evaluation function by both donors and NGOs, weak culture of carrying out, sharing, discussing and using the results of evaluation activities among NGOs and donors, a relative shortage of professional evaluation experts (in comparison with researchers, trainers, etc.), insufficient technical resources, limited monitory allocation to M&E work by donors, limited training opportunities in evaluation, shortage of trained staff, etc.
It is important to recognise that monitoring and evaluation are not magic wands that can be waved to make problems disappear, or to cure them, or to miraculously make changes without a lot of hard work being put in by the project or organisation. In themselves, they are not a solution, but they are valuable tools.
The last few years have witnessed an increased interest in strengthening project M&E by donors and Bangladeshi NGOs and civil society organizations. More Bangladeshi NGOs and civil society organizations are interested in strengthening their M&E capacity.
