Planning, monitoring and evaluation

This toolkit section offers advice on how to identify issues to act on, plan activities, monitor progress and assess the effectiveness of measures taken to address a specific fundamental rights challenge. It looks at partners and stakeholders who should be involved in planning, monitoring and evaluation locally, regionally and nationally.

Identifying issues
Politicians and decision makers need access to accurate data and evidence that demonstrate the need for fundamental rights action. Here you can find resources and practices for collecting data on fundamental rights from official sources, and other networks and actors. This will help build a comprehensive overview of fundamental rights challenges.

Planning
Fundamental rights need long-term commitment and support by many stakeholders at different levels. Here you can find guidance on how to identify and engage multiple stakeholder groups in planning processes. There are also examples of action plans that have proven to be an effective tool for joined-up implementation of fundamental rights.

Monitoring and evaluation
Here you can find advice on how to check whether a policy, measure or project is making a tangible difference on the ground. Is daily life getting better for the people who have been targeted? Monitoring and evaluation should be an integral part of the planning cycle. It should be used to inform current activities and to plan new activities.
