System learning in monitoring and evaluation

System learning in monitoring and evaluation

For sustainable development often radical changes at various levels are needed. Not only various groups of actors need to change their practices and to redefine their relationships and roles; the underlying institutions need to be challenged or reframed too. We therefore have developed the M&E approach 'Reflexive Monitoring in Action (RMA)' that supports challenging current modes of thinking, practices and institutions and thus facilitates system learning. RMA is a coherent but not rigidly defined body of basic starting points, principles, attitudes and a set of tools (see RMA guide, van Mierlo et al (2010b) http://www.com.wur.nl/UK/publications/RF). Our plea is to support networks of actors to challenge systems and to develop radically new visions and practices; with other words to support a reconstruction of reality. During the Conference we will share some of our experiences with RMA and one of its tools Collective System Analysis.
