* Theme 2: Getting Buy-in to RBM&E
* Theme 3: M&E, Knowledge Management, and Organisation Learning
* Theme 4: Beyond the Logical Framework

A facilitated ‘question and answer’ time will follow each Presentation
or Panel Discussion, during which time participants will be encouraged to
become involved.

There will also be opportunities to network, exhibit information, and share
information daily. A Forum dinner will also be hosted by the Forum organisers
of the evening of 27 November.
