Continuously striving for improvement
Our monitoring and evaluation (MEL) activities are increasingly focused on measuring the results and impact of public policies and international development activities to find out ‘what works’ in particular development situations.
Our approach focuses on examining the effectiveness, economy and efficiency of developments by assessing how various factors affect the outputs, outcomes and effects of different projects. Once we have established what does work, we seek to improve delivery and impact of interventions, contributing to best practice and ensuring that successful projects are continued, scaled up or repeated.
Outside of Europe our international evaluation unit works in conjunction with our Africa MEL hub (based in South Africa), bringing together a wealth of MEL expertise and experience. Our Africa MEL hub itself has an in-depth understanding of African development, as well as strong partnerships with local MEL experts and organisations.
