The Learning for Sustainability (LfS) site provides a guide to resources relevant for those working to support social learning and constructive action in multi-stakeholder settings. The site is 10 years old this year, and has just received a major revision and upgrade!

This portal site brings links to a wide range of on-line resources together in one easy to access place. Site content is largely sourced from the sustainable development, natural resource management, urban development, public health, conservation and agricultural sectors. Typical site users include researchers, evaluators, policymakers, agency staff, community and business leaders, and practitioners working in collaborative settings.

The site is now more comprehensive, yet easier to use than ever. You can now simply access the range of resources through six key areas. Click through to have a look.

Planning, monitoring and evaluation are a closely related set of activities. They lie at the heart of a learning-based approach to management, but it can sometimes be hard to see the ways in which they are linked. A logic model can illustrate how different evaluation approaches can be used to assess progress through the stages of implementation. This helps understand the key steps needed to develop a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system in context. As project stakeholders link these activities and use the feedback they generate they can begin to adapt their activities, and develop a self-improving system.
