This paper documents and critically reflects upon the planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning (PMEL) processes of the Watershed empowering citizens programme. The four primary tools used to monitor progress and learning were: theories of change (ToCs), capacity self-assessments (CSAs) and capacity action plans (CAPs), qualitative information system ladders (QIS) and outcome harvesting. The paper concludes with some key lessons learned and best practices.
