Stakeholders should be clear about what will be monitored during their program.
While the preceding steps cover what type of monitoring is to be done, there should also be discussion about exactly what information must be collected, and why. Some issues to consider before monitoring begins include:
- Who is the information for and how will they use it?
- Who will gather the information?
- Who will analyse the information?
- What type of strategy will be put in place to ensure collected data are promptly fed back (eg to landholders or agencies) in an appropriate and useful form?
