CDS Monitoring and Evaluation Guidance Framework
ECON Analysis and Centre for Local Government, UTS. Commissioned by Per Anders Persson, Senior Programme Officer, Cities Alliance.
This framework has been designed to help cities integrate Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) into their City Development Strategies (CDS). M&E is important because to enables cities to determine whether their CDS is achieving its objectives and realising its intended outcomes. The information generated by M&E can be used to inform and support CDS implementation, strengthen downstream project, programme and investment activities, and inform future strategic planning initiatives.
