UNICEF's annual Global Consultation on Monitoring and Evaluation took place during 16-20 November, 2009, in New York.
The consultation normally takes place during the second quarter every year; this year, the meeting was postponed to November. The meeting is attended by Chiefs of Monitoring and Evaluation at UNICEF's Regional Offices, as well as a limited number of Monitoring and Evalation officers from selected country offices.
The last day of the meeting was devoted to monitoring, and included a two hour session on MICS. The presentation by Attila Hancioglu included an update on activities in 2009, and plans for 2010, followed by a lively discussion. One of the highlights of the day was the launch of the MICS Compiler.
