Description: Part of the FOS Adaptive Management course, this guide covers the development of a monitoring plan in detail, starting with results chains to develop objectives, allocation of indicators and then consideration of approaches to monitoring and monitoring methods.
It is vetted as excellent, but does not deal well the issue of “simple” versus “complex” situations and what those differences might look like.
Also included here are breakout instructions for developing a monitoring plan.
