The implementation of the project commenced in March 2017 and has been extended several times, this time, the project ended in December 2019 and it’s extended in 2020. A total of 5 trained monitors are attached to MRF’s PMRN Project in the four districts of Nugaal region. The monitors are trained by NRC on PMRN data collection, reporting, database and are invited for quarterly coordination meetings, where the highlights and major issues affecting the work of monitors are discussed.
The PMRN data are collected through interviews and observation in the strategic travel routes of the big cities and districts including IDPs, transit camps and police stations.
