Hands-on Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Training Course
RuralNet Associates Limited is a development consultancy company, established in August 1999 in Lusaka, Zambia. Over the years, RuralNet has executed many projects in different thematic areas out of which more than 75% have been in Monitoring and Evaluation (M&). These assignments have been for several national governments, multilateral and bilateral donor agencies, international and local NGOs, academic institutions and think tanks and other consultancy companies in Africa and beyond. RuralNet has thus a wealth of hands-on experience in all aspects of M&E including capacity building (training).
