Monitoring and evaluating internal and external changes in ICD projects
MetadataShow full item record
The Sustainable Uses of Biological Resources (SUBIR) Project began in 1992 as a pilot flagship ICDP. Now, seven years two phases and two external evaluations later, the project has achieved considerable integration among objectives, strategies, activities and partners, such that it is often difficult to discern where one element ends and another begins. Such integration, a key element in ICDP development, poses particular challenges to monitoring and evaluation practitioners. This paper will address some of those challenges: reconciling donor interests and community needs; evaluating processes of integration; information flows among Project stakeholders; and addressing conservation and development issues in strategic management will be discussed.
