Welcome to INTRAC's resource centre. We publish a wealth of materials that are useful for development practitioners both out in the field and engaged in policy making and research. These cover a broad range of topics in the areas of civil society strengthening and aid modalities, developed from our research, training and consultancy programmes. Materials are designed to inform and stimulate debate concerning development policy and practice; and to facilitate the exchange of ideas, learning and innovative practice.
As well as our own material, we also bring together useful material that is available from other organisations.
"An internet based news service oriented towards Non- Government Organisations (NGOs). MandE News focuses on innovations in methods of monitoring and evaluation of development projects, especially those with social development objectives or contents. This service is supported by a number of major British NGOs."
The primary purpose of this site is to provide a central starting point for staff of international relief and development agencies to locate resources related to program Design, Monitoring and Evaluation and information about training opportunities. The contents, review and links are contributions from NGOs and consultants.
"The Pelican Initiative focuses on the central question: How can we learn more from what we do while at the same time having the biggest possible impact on the social change processes in which we engage? We usually try to learn from what we do through monitoring and evaluation (M&E), participatory inquiry, research or combinations of these. We have made a lot of progress in developing better approaches and methods to allow relevant stakeholders to participate in such processes. However, to allow for broadened social interaction around evidence and widespread learning for development, insights need to be communicated effectively. This platform seeks to bring together development practitioners from different disciplines, specialists and policy makers to explore this question, share experiences, and to push the agenda further on three themes: * Evidence and learning for policy change; * Learning in organisations and among partners; * Society-wide learning among a multitude of stakeholders."
