This handbook was developed to enhance the ability of strategic objective teams—those USAID officers and their partners responsible for program management—to monitor progress in achieving planned results and use performance information to guide program implementation. USAID’s Center for Democracy and Governance undertook this effort, recognizing that defining objectives, establishing benchmarks, and assessing progress in the democracy and governance arena(s) present unique challenges to the Agency. The Center believed that real gains in our understanding of performance measurement could only come from a concerted effort, drawing together practitioners and experts of different kinds. As a result, this handbook seeks to offer advice on the collaborative process of developing indicators and gives a broad selection of candidate (not mandated) indicators for monitoring each of the Agency’s democracy objectives.
