Projects are the set of activities to be completed within time, cost and quality specification. Completing projects successfully require good planning and continuous monitoring during implementation. Planning and monitoring are the basic skills required for personnel working in project for proper implementation. If projects are properly implemented, they will deliver expected results and help to achieve the goals of development plans.
In Nepal, performance of development projects and programs seem very poor. That is why, the Nepal Country Partnership Strategy has emphasized the need for improvement of portfolio performance of projects funded by Asian Development Bank. There is an urgent need of developing capacity in key agencies and to meet an immediate requirement for better investment planning and project preparation, implementation, and monitoring. The TNA has also indicated the lacking of knowledge and skills in project planning and monitoring.
In this regard, the training on project planning and monitoring has been designed to impart planning and monitoring knowledge and skills to the participants to improve project performance.
The aim of this course is to enhance the project planning and monitoring knowledge and skills of the participants.
