Managing Humanitarian Aid work with the principles of project cycle management is becoming more intense and demanding in terms of resource, skill, values, experience, and documentation of results. The task of program coordination is becoming crucial in attaining the impact as forecasted; as well as in managing the internal teams and external stakeholders, thus to enhance efficiency, effectiveness and outcomes of the program. Of late this role is centralised with a MEAL officer to coordinate with the teams responsible to capture the results out of the functions of monitoring, evaluating, accounting and learning. This workshop facilitates such cross learning and sharing among the professionals involved in these specific role functions: either as a MEAL officer or as a different role persons contributing to the MEAL.
