Finding out what works and why is the basis of our work. Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) has a central role in international development. M&E ensures development effectiveness, transparency and accountability.
Through our M&E services, we contribute to evidence-based development policy and decision-making and the strengthening of institutional learning and accountability. We provide the insights and ideas needed to help our clients understand what works and what doesn’t, and why.
We work closely with our clients to ensure that our services are aligned with existing organisational systems, structures and culture.
Wherever possible, evaluations are forward looking, focusing on improvement rather than only pointing out problems.
Our evaluations are carried out in accordance with the OECD/DAC evaluation criteria of relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability. They are based on well-grounded, robust methodologies and carried out by evaluation professionals and thematic experts. Through a close dialogue with the commissioning organisation, and by involving the main stakeholders throughout the process, we ensure the best utility of our evaluation products.
What we do in monitoring and analyzing:
- Integrated monitoring and results-based management
- Organisational assessments
- Project and programme reviews and evaluations
- Development of participatory monitoring systems
