IMC is managing the Evidence and Learning Facility, South Sudan (ELFSS) for DFID South Sudan.
ELFSS supports DFID’s Humanitarian Assistance and Resilience Programme in South Sudan (HARISS) through better use of high quality evidence.
HARISS is a five-year (2015-2020) humanitarian and resilience-building programme. It aims to save lives, alleviate suffering of those populations affected by the country’s alarming humanitarian crisis, and support vulnerable people’s capacities to prepare, withstand and recover from conflict, natural disasters and disease outbreaks.
Supporting the HARISS programme, ELFSS conducts Third Party Monitoring (TPM) of HARISS implementing partners and their downstream partners to provide accountability and oversight of the DFID humanitarian and resilience portfolio. This includes systematic visits by third party monitors to DFID funded humanitarian and resilience projects to externally verify the approach taken in terms of quality and results. The results of the TPM are synthesised quarterly in learning reports to collate learning from across all TPM visits. This provides key lessons and good practice to Implementing Partners to improve future programming. In addition, ELFSS has provided some support services to HARISS partners, including on Value for Money (VfM) and Accountability to Affected Populations (AAP).
IMC is working in partnership with Forcier Consulting, University College London, CommsConsult, Development Gateway and the University of Portsmouth.
