Who we are ?

A&B Consulting is a consulting firm based in Dakar, Senegal and working exclusively on Monitoring, Evaluation and environmental impact assessments.
A & B Consulting has a pool of experienced consultants (both junior and senior) who have worked exclusively in development. Our team has mastery and experience consulting and building capacity on several major development and humanitarian themes, for several international agencies and several countries. Monitoring and evaluation of project activities are essential for assessing the progress made towards the goals and results. For the A & B Consulting team, we seek to improve Monitoring Evaluation systems as a means through which to ensure the best impact on the lives of beneficiary communities. We firmly believe that monitoring is more than just collecting information on the project. It is the systematic and continuous evaluation of progress over time by collecting and analyzing information and using that information to improve the work within the project and in the end the lives of beneficiaries. Evaluation is a periodic assessment of the results or impact of a project. Monitoring and evaluation become tools to identify strengths and weaknesses and to make sound and timely decisions.The environmental impact studies ex-ante or ex post allows us to anticipate, minimize or correct if necessary, any impact that our projects would leave in our environment. Their importance stems from the fact that we must work with all the effort possible to leave the least possible negative impact on the environment, when we try to implement a project. A & B Consulting is accredited duly registered and approved to compete on the requests of U.S. government agencies, the World Bank and NATO.



Project evaluation examines the results, effects and impact of a project on the quality of life of participants and non-participants.  Through this assessment, project participants (and others) aim to understand and explain the effects of a project.

Handbook on Monitoring and Evaluation for Results

The growing demand for development effectiveness is largely based on the realization that producing good “deliverables” is not enough.  Efficient or well-managed projects and outputs will lose their relevance if they yield no discernible improvement in development conditions and ultimately in peoples’ lives.  The United Nations Development Programme is therefore increasing its focus on results and how it can better contribute to them.

Practical Guide on Monitoring and Evaluation of Rural Development Projects

International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), a specialized agency of the United Nations, was established as an international financial institution in 1977 as one of the major outcomes of the 1974 World Food Conference. The Conference was organized in response to the food crises of the early 1970s that primarily affected the Sahelian countries of Africa.
The conference resolved that “an International Fund for Agricultural Development should be established immediately to finance agricultural development projects primarily for food production in the developing countries”. One of the most important insights emerging from the conference was that the causes of food insecurity and famine were not so much failures in food production, but structural problems relating to poverty and to the fact that the majority of the developing world’s poor populations were concentrated in rural areas.

Monitoring and Evaluation – Quick Reference

Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) are integral and individually distinct parts of programme preparation and implementation. They are critical tools for forward-looking strategic positioning, organisational learning and for sound management.
This chapter provides an overview of key concepts, and details the monitoring and evaluation responsibilities of Country Offices, Regional Offices and others. While this and preceding chapters focus on basic description of monitoring and evaluation activities that CO are expected to undertake, more detailed explanation on practical aspects of managing monitoring and evaluation activities can be found in the UNICEF Monitoring and Evaluation Training Resource as well as in the series Evaluation Technical Notes.
