As part of Netherland Trust Fund Senegal's goal of building sustainable competitiveness in the country's mango industry, ITC expert held a Monitoring and Evaluation training session in Sally, Senegal.

The training shed light on the concepts and language used in overseeing and assessing projects and gives participants greater confidence in applying their new knowledge to programming, operational functions, and evaluating programmes and projects.
The training session, held from 21-23 September, was co-organised with the Senegalese export promotion agency ASEPEX in conjunction with the ITC /NTF II. Nineteen participants from ASEPEX learned about the main techniques for the collection of data which will be used as indicators for monitoring.
Instructors focused on outcomes and achievements rather than physical and financial monitoring and also examined other information which could have a decisive influence on the life of the project, such as qualitative data and data on the environment.
Monitoring and evaluation is an integral component of an institution or a project and of NTFII Senegal in particular. The training session was based on the premise that key decision makers must attain the relevant skills in monitoring and evaluation for an organisation to meet its goal, vision, mission and strategic objectives.
