Dear Binoy ji,
It is encouraging to hear that increased expectations must not be seen as a negative outcome of participatory M&E. I guess as a facilitator, channeling such expectations towards appropriate actors (e.g. govt. departments or even institutional options like MNREGS) is crucial.
However, from my experience, I feel that in reality often the facilitator has a clear mandate of monitoring a certain project and is unable to continue the process beyond that. In such a situation, continuous facilitation is impossible and communities may be left halfway.
Thank you for your reply.
