Environmental Monitoring
   



Making a program effective requires a specific link between what you are doing and the outcomes that are important to you. This is established right at the beginning with clear thinking about your "problem" and how you think about the context of the program (the problem frame), the assumptions and/or models that you use to design the program, and the ways you will use the results to achieve desired outcomes.

Efficient means doing as much as you need to at least (opportunity) cost. A badly designed program, ill advised cost cutting, inappropriate methods etc will result either in more expenditure than you need to get good results, or unusable results which waste the resources you have used. Remember, it is not only whether you can afford to undertake the program but also if the proposed program is the best use of those resources. Would you (and the environment and the community) be better off by doing something else?


How do I get reliable results?
