This toolkit is designed to introduce the reader to project monitoring and why it is an essential component of any community rights workers program. The reader is taken through a step-by-step process to develop a monitoring system. By following these steps, the reader can create a monitoring system specific to her/his own program. A land rights organization in Uganda used this toolkit to design a monitoring system for its community rights workers program in Luwero district. Its experience is used as an example throughout the toolkit to provide a real-world illustration of the process. Though qualitative monitoring and feedback sessions with rights workers are also important sources of valuable information, this toolkit focuses on quantitative monitoring to understand the program and community needs.
