CIDT news – December

Supporting the RNLI to chart a course for results
CIDT’s Ella Haruna has been supporting the RNLI team to embed Project Cycle Management and Results-Based Management approaches in a number of ways, including technical assistance to develop the results framework and developing supporting frameworks for programme Monitoring Evaluation and Learning, as well as working closely with the team to revise and review the International theory of change.
