The World Bank & PROFOR Study on ICT for Data Collection and M&E in Agriculture and Forestry

Provider: The World Bank | December 12, 2013

The World Bank

This study was developed to assist development practitioners in assessment and selection of information (ICT) applications for monitoring and evaluation in rural projects, specifically in agriculture and forestry, with an emphasis on mobile technology for data collection. Particularly in highly decentralized projects, data collection can be challenging, and the large number of options and specific project needs makes selecting technology a challenge. This report was developed in response to an identified need for development practitioners to be able to stay current with changing technology and identify appropriate avenues for assessing and selecting technology to support monitoring and evaluation (M&E) as well as project outcomes.

The report proposes guidance in selecting and applying technology for data collection and monitoring and evaluation through the lens of agriculture and forestry projects. It is designed to be a deep-dive, operational piece that tackles how governments and development practitioners can use ICT to enhance their data collection and M&E efforts in rural development projects and programs.
