Implementing validating environmental health monitoring system
Organize the data collection and analysis: What methods will you use to ensure the right data are being collected and analysed? Methods can be qualitative/ quantitative, individual/group based, participatory/conventional.
How will the various stakeholders be involved in these processes?
By 'scope' we mean the level of detail required, the level of stakeholder participation and the level of funding available (e.g., you might want to make the system highly participatory, but funding constraints limit the extent to which you can involve stakeholders). Assess the stakeholders’ key information needs: The most important question here is: What do management, other project staff, beneficiaries and other stakeholders need to know and when?
Review the project concept and objectives: This involves asking questions such as: What is the project about? Formulate indicators and other data requirements: You need to formulate a list of criteria against which to measure effectiveness and efficiency, and determine the type of data (quantitative and qualitative) you will need to carry out this measurement (e.g.
Develop the communication and reporting process: You should decide whom you need to communicate with and report to during the monitoring and evaluation processes, and how to do this.
You also need to assess the potential risks in the process of data collection, recording and reporting, such as re-traumatization of survivors or work overload of staff.
Monitoring systems vary in sophistication from a piece of paper and some notebooks or files, to electronic filing systems and databases.
The most important thing is not how sophisticated the system is but whether the information needed for decision-making is collected, reviewed systematically and used for necessary adaptations.
Taken together, the two analyses allowed for the following conclusions: Reviewers will provide an overall impact score to reflect their assessment of the likelihood for the project to exert a sustained, powerful influence on the research field s involved, in consideration of the following review criteria and additional review criteria as applicable for the project proposed. Other articles were excluded because they were reviews rather than original studies, did not report results of specific applications, or had not been published in peer-reviewed journals.
