Monitoring and Evaluation
Our monitoring and evaluation process goes beyond the requirements of most organisations as it is always designed to have the greatest impact on the improvement of existing projects or the development of future projects.
Our understanding of the local context allows us to look beyond the obvious and immediate consequences of a develop project. This allows us to evaluate not only the outputs and the outcomes of projects but also their broader social impact. It also allows us to understand the ways in which the project may have been influenced by a range of variables, like the governance environment or changing economic conditions. This can help to ensure that future projects learn the lessons of the past.
