The process of reflecting on change over time is also referred to as ‘monitoring
and evaluation’. This process can help the community understand the impacts
and effectiveness of what has occurred in the past in order to plan and respond
accordingly in the future. It is an important part of adapting the protocol and
strategy as priorities change.

Overall, monitoring and evaluation tools can help address the following general questions:

  • What progress have we made? What have we achieved so far?
  • What lessons have we learned (both positive and negative)?
  • What has worked well? What has not worked well? Why?
  • What impacts have we had within the community, on the environment, and with external actors?
  • What is our overall level of satisfaction or wellbeing?
  • How could we adapt our activities and decision-making processes in order to further improve?

This part of the Toolkit contains three sections. Looking Inwards highlights key methods and tools to explore processes and changes within the community and to report back to the community about what has happened to date. Looking Outwards does the same for exploring processes and changes with and reporting back to external actors. Revisiting and Revising the Protocol includes a process of assessing change, revisiting the visions, plans, and strategies that arose during the documentation and development of the protocol, and finally, revising the protocol itself in light of significant changes.
