Monitoring and evaluation determine how well an emergency preparedness programme is being developed and implemented and what needs to be done to improve it. The method can be applied to:

- developing and implementing policy;
- vulnerability assessment;
- emergency planning;
- organizational preparedness;
- training and education.

Three ways of monitoring and evaluating preparedness are described here:

- project management;
- checklists;
- exercises.
