To monitor is to check on how project activities are progressing. It is observation; systematic and purposeful observation.Monitoring also involves giving feedback about the progress of the project to the donors, implementors and beneficiaries of the project.Reporting enables the gathered information to be used in making decisions for improving project performance.
