As Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is evolving into an essential component of sustainable development projects, the humanitarian sector is also becoming aware of the need for M&E. The following course-linked paper provides an overview of the characteristics of humanitarian relief interventions and discusses the increasing importance and challenges of M&E in the humanitarian sector. This overview serves as the backdrop to the development of an M&E framework for SHIFA’A, a health sector relief effort based in Syria which is being conducted by the Syrian American Medical Society Foundation (SAMS).
