Training: MEAL during Project Design

7 - 8 December 2020

MEAL Training

MEAL stands for Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning and is an essential part of every project. In this introductory training, we present different elements of the MEAL system. The goal of the workshop is to enable participants to identify the appropriate elements of MEAL when designing an action.

The workshop will mostly draw on experiences from the development and humanitarian sector.


The training will take place online via Zoom over 2 days in November: Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 December 2020. Both days will be sessions of three and a half hours, including a break of 20 minutes. Both sessions will start at 9:00 CET and end at 12:30 CET.


Susan van Duijl is an experienced humanitarian with 17 years’ experience working in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. She is driven by a desire to support communities and people across the world to rebuild their lives and livelihoods after disaster and conflict and thrive again. After holding numerous leadership positions in emergency responses, working among others with Catholic Relief Services, Mercy Corps and ACAPS, she is currently focusing on empowering humanitarian organizations to implement principled and locally led humanitarian action through training, mentoring and accompaniment.

Who can attend

This event is only for Caritas Europa members, and in particular people involved in designing development and emergency relief projects. We suggest to register one person per organisation as a smaller group allows for more interaction, especially in online workshops.

However, you can register more than one person if the size of your organisation or the different roles require it. In case there are too many registrations we will then offer the possibility of a “silent” participation (as observer).




Registration for this event is now closed.
