This handbook provides guidance for designing and implementing a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system. The guidance supports and complements CRS‘ global M&E standards.1 The global standards represent the agency‘s commitment to high- quality M&E as a key component of program quality, and this handbook provides step-by-step guidance for operationalizing this commitment. Each topic includes its own set of standards, which emphasizes the key messages and quality considerations relevant to the topic. Whereas the global M&E standards are high- level overarching commitments, the standards in this handbook provide practical quality-control considerations specific to individual components of an M&E system.
