Asia-Pacific Association of Agricultural Research Institutions (APAARI) in collaboration with Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR), Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR) and Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute (MARDI) jointly organized a five-day capacity development workshop on “Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation towards Measuring Outcomes and Impacts” on 3-7 August 2015 at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The workshop provided the opportunity to participants to share their experiences in undertaking research projects in their respective countries. Presentations on necessary background information and evaluation concepts were given. Hands-on training helped participants to orient themselves to PM&E framework and tools for better design, implement and evaluation of project.
The workshop was attended by thirty one project team leaders who are involving in orientating, planning and evaluating agricultural R&D projects from 18 countries in Asia and the Pacific. Four resource persons representing ACIAR and GFAR provided valuable inputs in the workshop.
It is our expectation that this publication would be useful to all stakeholders who are engaged in agricultural research for sustainable development.
