The Pacific Women hosted a 3 days workshop from the 11th-12th May to review their monitoring and evaluation system. As a development partner we are thankful to Pacific Women for the technical and financial support given to Women in Fisheries Network-Fiji for the designing of their M&E Framework. The three main objectives of the workshop were:

  1. to review M&E findings and recommendations in relation to their application to Pacific Women’s M&E system.
  2. to review Pacific Women’s theory of change , program theory , program logic , questions and indicators
  • to assess and provide recommendations for improvements to elements of the M&E systems.

The WiFN-Fiji has gained from the workshop in looking at what is working well through the experiences and stories of participants from the region which included PNG, Samoa and Tonga. The M&E system was also assessed in terms of its challenges and the best practical solution to overcome the challenges. The workshop also highlighted the importance of having a data collection tool kit to assist us in the monitoring and evaluation process.

The Network is now on take-off stage to implement the M&E system and with the annual review of the system will enable us to see what works well.
