Working under the guidance of the IASC humanitarian programme cycle steering group, the inter-agency Monitoring Technical Group has developed guidance on a joint approach to response monitoring for the humanitarian community.

Response Monitoring Guidance

This document lays out the basic concepts of response monitoring and how to prepare and apply a humanitarian response monitoring framework to measure progress made against strategic objectives and cluster objectives as stated in the HRP.
It is available for download here. An annotated Monitoring Framework template is also available, here.

Periodic Monitoring Report Guidance

This guidance document sets out the processes and content for producing a Periodic Monitoring Report (PMR). The PMR uses the findings from the response monitoring framework as a foundation to determine if strategic and cluster objectives are being met as planned and which remedial action, if any, should be taken. You can download it here.
A template for the report is available here.
