Re-asserting the role of M&E in Government Interventions: Lessons from the current COVID-19 Pandemic

At the close of 2019 (December) and shortly before New Year 2020 set in, news streamed from Wuhan, China of an outbreak of the now global nuisance –the corona virus (COVID 19). Few people across the world could have picked interest in such a story then but its ravaging impact has almost made every person aware of not only its danger but the various dimensions it has taken to the global society at ransom. Nobody has the cure yet and most interventions being tried by various countries have not been based on sound evidence; at least from the monitoring and evaluation vocabulary. This webinar intends to have a conversation on the role of M&E in the whole equation of government interventions.
