This primer on monitoring and evaluation (M&E) offers a brief explanation of what M&E is, why it is important and what common best practices are associated with it, all in the context of supporting the implementation of a socially responsible land-based investment. It also includes specific guidance on how to develop and execute an effective M&E plan for the implementation of an investment under Phase 4 of the RIPL Guidebook investment timeline, corresponding suggested M&E indicators, and links to additional resources. This primer should be used as a starting point for the development of a customized M&E plan for each investment project through a collaborative and consensual process that reflects the desired outcomes of all affected stakeholders.
