This guide on Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning was prepared under the project Capacity Development for Agricultural Innovation Systems (CDAIS), a global partnership (Agrinatura, FAO and eight pilot countries) that aims to strengthen the capacity of countries and key stakeholders to innovate in complex agricultural systems, thereby achieving improved rural livelihoods. CDAIS uses a continuous learning cycle approach to support national agricultural innovation systems in eight countries in Africa, in Asia and Central America. CDAIS brings together key partners and actors to address commonly identified challenges and opportunities in specific value chains and in key organizations providing innovation support services.

CDAIS introduced a partecipatory monitoring, evaluation and learning system which combines elements of the outcome mapping approach and semi-quantative approaches (scoring of innovation capacities).
This guide serves as a resource for national facilitators and for other project stakeholders, as well as for other capacity development and monitoring experts to i) implement a MEL system and to be able to track the main outcomes (behavioural changes) resulting from the project.
