Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is a critical part of the United Nations and implementing partners project management and implementation. It is also a crucial mechanism necessary for donor reporting and enhancing resource mobilisation opportunities. As a result, if you intern at the UN in any role which is related to project management and implementation you will definitely encounter M&E.
