Monitoring, Learning and Evaluation Toolkit from WIEGO (Women in Informal Employment: Globalizing and Organizing). Barbara Klugman developed this Toolkit, with inputs from Carmen Wilson-Grau and WIEGO team members, to support WIEGO and its partners in specific aspects of their monitoring and learning processes. It relies heavily on Outcome Harvesting and we hope they will be useful to other movements as well as monitoring and evaluation professionals, grant makers, managers, and implementers in the use of Outcome Harvesting during their work. The Toolkit has a series of eight tools, each with a different focus. You may need to use some of them together, 2022:
