The Centers for Learning on Evaluation and Results (CLEAR) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) have joined forces to design and implement PRiME, a three year monitoring and evaluation training and certification program. PRiME is headquartered at the CLEAR Center for Latin America, based at Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (CIDE), Mexico City.
PRiME works with government officials and ministries currently engaged with IFAD, improving their knowledge of M&E as a tool for greater impact in the rural sectors managed by these government counterparts. Participants are nominated by their respective governments, based on pre-established criteria. In addition, PRiME welcomes other interested officials, consultants, and partners from affiliated international financial institutions and multilateral development banks.
PRiME is comprised of three stages:
• M&E Fundamentals Course 1: 5 days, October 9th – 13th, 2017, Rome, Italy
• M&E Fundamentals Course 2: 5 days, April 9th – 13th, 2018, Nairobi, Kenya
The courses will be offered in English, Spanish, and French. The courses will be subsequently held in selected locations (based on participant demand) two times per year.
