Monitoring and Evaluation of African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD): An Exemplar of Managing for Impact in Development Evaluation
Brandon, Paul R.; Smith, Nick L.; Ofir, Zenda; Noordeloos, Marco
American Journal of Evaluation, v35 n1 p128-143 Mar 2014
In this Exemplars case, the fifth and final under the direction of the current coeditors, the authors present a reflective account of an ongoing, complex, multiyear, multinational monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system conducted for African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD), an international development program. The program provides African female scientists in agriculture with professional development intended to influence the agriculture sector, and the M&E system supports a "managing for impact" approach to bring about change in individuals and groups in the short term and in institutions and the agricultural sector in the long term. The preparation and writing of the case was a collaborative effort of the four authors. As in the four most recent Exemplars cases, they begin with a description of the program and evaluation system, followed by an amalgamation in an interview format of the extensive evaluator-editor dialogue that occurred while preparing the case.
