MTCP2 regional implementing agencies Asian Farmers Association (AFA) and La Via Campesina (LVC) have designed and implemented a re-orientation and training program on monitoring and evaluation (M&E), knowledge management (KM) and financial management (FM) for the project’s National Implementing Agencies (NIAs).
The program was conducted in each of the three sub-regions (Southeast Asia, South Asia and Pacific) from December last year to January this year.
The workshop was intended to respond to a recommendation during the MTCP2 expanded regional steering committee meeting last October 2014 to harmonize and level off on MTCP2’s systems and tools in planning, monitoring, evaluation, finance and knowledge management.
At the end of the training, participants from all MTCP2 implementing agencies at national, sub-regional and regional levels were able to finalize their 2015 Qualitative Targets 2015-2018 as well as 2015 annual work plan and budget; and have clearer understanding of MTCP2 implementation and reporting formats.
They also experienced hands-on training on filling out M&E forms, as well as on online tools, knowledge sharing techniques, and photo and video documentation.
