Abstract: This paper is based on the role of monitoring and evaluation towards improved governance-- a case study of the Punjab Cities Governance Improvement Project (PCGIP) as a research design. Owing to growing social, economic and governance challenges to the province, a number of governance issues are on the rise. Hence, in order to tackle governance mismanagement, the government of the Punjab is committed to improve the services delivery and provision of other civic services through improved governance system in the province with the coordination of city entities like, CDGs, WASAs and DAs of the five big selected cities of the province. The project is being funded by the World Bank (with worth amount US $150 million) which is working in the five major cities of the province namely; Lahore, Faisalabad, Rawalpindi, Multan and Gujranwala. The project has established seven Disbursement Linked Indicators (DLIs) tomeasure the annual based performance and progress of the project in the respective cities through their proper monitoring and evaluation. This, M & E system provides overall a framework of action and mechanism in achieving the desired objectives and goals of a project within its set costs and time limit.Thus, monitoring measures the performance of implementation of an ongoing project to check and highlight any deviation. At the same time, evaluation is made to gauge the impact of activities performed, in addition, it also enhances our experience and learning in both cases of success and failure as well. In this study, the role of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is being studied as a fundamental tool to measure the level of effectiveness, efficiency, transparency and accountability, and a way forward to improve governance system in thePunjab province. This may ensure improved municipal services delivery to the citizens and good living standards in the selected cities.The study is following qualitative approach, while data have been collected through structured interviews which has been analyze through content analysis method. At the end of the paper for improvements of the project, certain recommendations have also been offered.
