Other Definitions

Reporting is a category of activities in which data and information are presented to communicate processes, roles, and results and provide support for decision-making. While the reporting process will vary depending on the target audience, a main goal is to move towards closer alignment of values between stakeholders and decision-makers. Reporting activities usually have some degree of one-way information transmission. Reporting may be general or aimed at communicating the results of monitoring processes or evaluation exercises. Reporting activities need to rely on information available through monitoring activities but do not necessarily need to be performed by the institutions in charge of monitoring.
