Conflict-sensitive monitoring and evaluation

This is a very interesting document providing practical advice to develop monitoring and evaluation systems that are "conflict-sensitive". By "conflict-sensitive", the authors are referring to a "system that captures the interaction between project and context, and to identify relevant indicators to monitor this intervention."

Conflict-sensitive M&E is really part of a broader approach to conflict sensitive project design and implementation and this document is just one module of a series that addresses conflict-sensitive development projects.

Related questions:
1. What are the obstacles/constraints to M&E in conflict situations? In some situations, either pre-conflict, conflict or post-conflict, going around asking questions or asking people to fill questionnaires is going to be problematic.

2. Are ICT projects even more problematic than other types of projects with regards to M&E in conflict situations?
