Monitoring and evaluation poses particular challenges in PPD – not least because of the inherent tension between setting targets in advance and encouraging ownership of the process by stakeholders. These resources lay out some of the latest thinking on the subject. A valuable resource which looks at participatory and process-oriented approaches for monitoring and evaluation in public-private partnerships, it reviews lessons learned and looks at a case study from Macedonia. This is a draft paper prepared for the international conference on “reforming the business environment”, held in Cairo in November/December 2005. Also available: a pdf of the presentation to the conference.

This paper is an attempt to address this weakness in current M&E methods and instruments in public-private partnerships. It provides new insights to participatory and process-oriented approaches on Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) of multi-stakeholder partnerships. The paper is focusing on the following central research question:
Which participatory and process-oriented methods of monitoring and evaluation have been developed over the past decades and what is their applicability in the context of processes of multi-stakeholder dialogue and building partnerships in local contexts?
This paper first presents an overview of developments, lessons learned and critical success factors in developing multi-stakeholder partnerships. Subsequently it provides an overview of recently developed participatory and process oriented M&E methods and tools and a selection of these have been adapted and tested in a field-study on local economic development processes in two municipalities in Macedonia.
