The European Commission's Capacity4dev.eu knowledge sharing platform has a number of interesting documents on Results-Oriented Monitoring, indicator development, and other subjects on monitoring and evaluation, online courses and webinars and several groups with relevant discussions. Also of use in understanding the European approach to RBM is the Updated 2018 EU Development Results Framework. The 2020 EuropeAid Results Oriented Monitoring Handbook [See discussion of earlier versions] is focused more on managing the consultants conducting monitoring, than it is on the application of RBM to project management
The donor agenciy and development organization websites vary in quality, and they do not always implement their own results-based management guidelines, but if you are working with them, it is wise to know how the different agencies, at least in theory, approach results-based management. This page is updated regularly, but the links sometimes expire as the agencies archive their old material. If that happens, a search for the title can often find them in other locations. Many of the UN agencies' publicly accessible websites are available in http only, so secure mode in Firefox may not work. If that occurs, try the download in Http only, or use another browser
Audio Podcasts available for listening or download that are relevant to results-based management and indicator development:
