Strategic Planning, Monitoring, and Evaluation (SPM&E) is an institutional-wide advisory unit providing technical support to ensure all ICIMOD programmes sustain meaningful impacts across the region. SPM&E focusses on performance and outcomes on the ground. Through participatory strategic planning, review, and evaluation processes, SPM&E provides guidance, advice and technical support to integrate Results Based planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (RBM&E) into institutional functions and produce required results at different levels. SPM&E also ensures timely internal and external quality evaluations and impact assessments on institutional and programmatic achievements against set objectives and outcomes. Monitoring and evaluation of programme-level results rests with programme managers and coordinators.
