While economic, social and environmental challenges are increasingly complex, various government agencies are facing growing pressure to deliver more and better products and services. To better track the implementation of the programs, projects and activities, and the prudence utilization of the resources, monitoring and evaluation (M&E) plays a crucial role. 

The M&E system provides clear and defined procedure and tools for the collection, processing, and reporting of targets, accomplishments, and/or results of ATI’s programs, projects, and activities.  

Output-level monitoring through the corporate M&E processes and the formulation of the Agricultural and Fisheries Extension (AFE) Results-Based Monitoring and Evaluation (RBME) System Report shows the results and changes that happened to the AFE recipients of the extension interventions of ATI in the previous years. The system also includes the impact evaluation and assessment of specific ATI programs and services.
