Our webinar has been rescheduled to Thursday 12th December at 2pm AEDT - Join us!

Why Inclusion in M&E?

Understanding the broader outcomes and the change created by development and humanitarian programs is an important piece of our work. Including people with disabilities in both the information collected and the process of collecting it is key part of understanding that change. With the growing recognition that people with disabilities experience disproportionately higher levels of poverty and exclusion than many other groups, and that good practice requires a focus on ‘leaving no one behind’, there is a need to ensure our monitoring and evaluation (M&E) practices are properly capturing and contributing to meaningful outcomes for people with disabilities.

Join us at this webinar to discuss approaches, methods and practical applications of ensuring monitoring and evaluation is capturing the whole story with respect to inclusion of and impacts for people with disabilities.

The webinar will include a presentation and Q and A discussion focused on three areas:

  • What monitoring and evaluation could and should be telling us about disability inclusion within international development and humanitarian programming;
  • Approaches to collecting this information, including discussion of the strengths and challenges of collecting disability-disaggregated data;
  • The importance of including people with disabilities in the process of monitoring and evaluation, and some examples and tips for how this can be done.

This webinar is hosted in partnership with ACFID.
