Monitoring, evaluation & learning

Cross-cutting monitoring and evaluation services, and measurement of impact and results from design and project implementation to post-completion evaluation services.

At the heart of the renewed M&E agenda in development is the push for demonstrating value-for-money, evidence-based decision making and effective project prioritisation. This trend towards improving development project M&E has increased demand from taxpayers and project participants for demonstrated impact, results and value for money.

Now more than ever, programmes must deliver proven programmatic impact and share lessons to improve the global evidence base.

We practise M&E across all technical areas in which we operate, from social development, climate change and environment, innovation and livelihoods to transport infrastructure engineering and management.

When designing projects, we ensure that our programmes are structured to allow them to be measured objectively. We have a dedicated in-house team of experts in M&E and impact evaluation and learning who also provide technical backstopping. They are complemented by our wide network of specialists with niche expertise.
