Six staff members from UN Women Burundi and one from UN Women Rwanda attended a workshop to master di Monitoring, an intuitive web-based monitoring and evaluation application built on DevInfo technology. The Training of Trainers, which took place December 17-21 in Bujumbura, focused on ensuring that the UN Women Burundi team could transfer their annual work plan, currently in Word format, into an interactive di Monitoring framework.
During the week of 22-28 October 2012, 26 leaders from various government organizations in Burundi gathered for a special training on di Monitoring, a web-based application that facilitates the tracking of development plans. The five-day training, organized by UN Women Burundi, introduced participants to the many features of the tool, such as viewing which indicators of progress in the development plan are on track, almost on track, and off track. The main role of the UN Women member team is to support the Government of Burundi with objectives and key results in gender equity issues. The DevInfo Support Group spoke with Monitoring and Evaluation specialist for UN Women Burundi, Arthemon Gihimbare, who shared his plan for implementing di Monitoring, and his vision to involve all national partners in the process.
