Larger initiatives and strategies that address complex issues often involve subsidiary programs and projects. Initiatives may be multi-site or even multi-country. They may involve a single model operating in different sites, or a cluster of varied models with common goals. Developing inter-connected Monitoring and Evaluation Frameworks that guide the initiative and its programs and projects is at the complex end of evaluation practice. A useful approach entails the development of cascading and tiered program theories and program logics, evaluation questions and indicators, as well as the use of consistent and integrated data collection approaches and data analysis processes. Considerable skill development is involved in developing inter-connected Monitoring and Evaluation Frameworks that can effectively harness cumulative results across the initiative. This presentation will present an approach for linking Monitoring and Evaluation Frameworks at the different levels of initiative, program and project. It will further identify associated capacity building requirements for the effective implementation of connected Frameworks. There will opportunity for discussion of the approach and its application to evaluation practice.
