dc.description.abstract The aim of this research project work is to provide an understanding of the various Challenges of Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) encountered in the development works by UN organizations. The researcher made an assessment of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Ethiopia as a case study of development program. The study employed a qualitative research methodology by interviewing key informants selected based on relevance to the research and analyzed pertinent documents of M&E of the UNFPA. The major findings from the key informants interview and M&E document review of the organization indicate that absence of knowledge management utilization by the organization for M&E activities and decision making. Besides that, the research shows that the absence of synergy of M&E and programming is one area that should be strengthened further by the organization. In general, the small M&E unit which exists at the organization has not allowed for the only two M&E experts to provide the desired support for the large-scale programs of UNFPA conducted in various regions of the country. These constraints hinder the organization from effectively undertaking M&E work to achieve a better result in the development programs within the country. Some of the vital recommendations made in this research in order to ensure effective results-based monitoring & evaluation are; enhance the capacity of M&E unit in terms of human as well as financial resource to further support program implementation successfully, implementation of knowledge management to benefit from M&E information for decision making, and desire to create a proactive synergy of work between M&E and programs en_US
