This, dear readers and project stakeholders, will be the penultimate blog that I write regarding the progress of this project. The provisional version of the final report is now available :) Six months of hard graft have finally come together in the form of a PDF report, with 12 individual annexes. The report is ‘provisional’ at this stage, as it is being sent to an external editor and formatting whizz in order to produce the final, professional, snazzy looking version! That should be available by mid-March 2012 and a final project blog will accompany it. In the mean time, this version of the report is available for review.
This report has been a labour of love (and, at times, terror!) for me over the past six months, and I would like to specifically thank all of those stakeholders and blog-repliers who have encouraged me throughout this project with keen insights and ideas related to remote project monitoring and beneficiary accountability practices. This research would not have been possible without you. I would also like to thank the Humanitarian Innovation Fund and those at ELRHA (Enhancing Learning & Research for Humanitarian Assistance) for your support of the project.
To provide a taster of the report itself, the excerpt here is taken from the Executive Summary.
I truly hope that this is both an enjoyable and informative read and look forward to being able to share the final version of the report with you in March.
