Justification for Real time software for monitoring and evaluation
IDIWA is adjusting its analytical approaches, policies, programs and monitoring systems to sharpen its focus on results. As part of this effort, IDIWA is strengthening its approach to monitoring to accelerate results based reporting by ensuring that timely and high quality data are used to monitor and evaluate all programs.
Field Data collection using traditional methods has been associated with lots of Challenges such as high costs of surveys, field handling of bulky survey tools, cumbersome and costly data entry, delay in data availability after survey, among other challenges. Electronic/Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) and Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) methods for data collection are gaining prominence. Internet and mobile phone availability among populations, even in some remote communities, have grown so rapidly, enabling electronic data collection methods to flourish. The electronic methods are cheaper, more efficient and lead to more accurate data. It is against this background that IDIWA is shifting from paper based monitoring of programmes/projects to online monitoring and evaluation system.
