Monitoring and Evaluation is more
relevant than ever.
There is an urgent need to monitor the implementation of programs to ensure rapid course-corrections, and targeted resource allocation to populations that are most in need. Organisations need to ensure that all the measures and stimulus packages that are provided during the outbreak are utilized effectively. COVID-19 should not set back the achievement of the SDGs. Since the crisis is evolving rapidly, careful monitoring of the direct and indirect effects of all interventions are crucial to ensure relief and support responses are, and stay, relevant.
