Since 2008, GMEF has been organising various forums and events at different locations in the Greater Accra, Northern, Western and Ashanti regions. This year, she plans to expand her activities to the Volta and Upper East regions, with support from UNICEF, Ghana. The maiden forum in Bolga aimed at reviewing some identified M&E issues and to start discussions on how to improve on the planning and conduct of M&E in the region. Since it was the first GMEF event in Bolga, it introduced GMEF and encouraged the formation of a local network of M&E practitioners and enthusiasts in the region. Presentations were made by Prof. David Millar, Dr. Sulley Gariba, Mrs. Dede Bedu-Addo, Ms. Viola Dasoberi and Alhaji Abubakar Abdulai. In all 86 participants attended the forum.
