The study seeks to consider this very successful program beyond the norms of mainstream M&E procedures, to consider some of the issues raised in the critical literature regarding the new development paradigm and the larger discourse within which the new paradigm remains embedded. The present study raises a number of issues in regards to the AKRSP, including the role of religion in sustaining engagement amongst communities and the limits on market functions in alleviating poverty, that reflect the failure of mainstream approaches to reflect important issues in the field into M&E outcomes. The implications of the study are that M&E processes need to be overhauled and that the feedback of observers external to the development industry is crucial in framing development policy. An awareness of the kinds of issues raised in this study in regards to the specific case study undertaken is crucially important in shaping responsive and realistic M&E processes and developing policy formulation, especially of development policy alternatives, at all levels. Keywords: Monitoring and evaluation, participatory development, rural development, new development paradigm
