Worldwide: Monitoring and evaluation of Energy 4 Impact’s Moving Energy Initiative

IMC Worldwide has provided monitoring and evaluation support to the eight workstreams of the Moving Energy Initiative (MEI), bringing knowledge across MEI partners and implementing organisations to share with the wider humanitarian, development and energy sectors.

Millions of displaced people have poor access to energy. Power management in camps as well as in other areas of displaced populations is often expensive, carbon-intensive and wasteful.

The Moving Energy Initiative (MEI) contributed towards improved access to sustainable energy for displaced people, for domestic and commercial purposes, and safe, reliable, secure and more efficient energy solutions for the administrative and public service facilities.

The DFID-funded project was designed to generate change in energy provision for refugees and displaced people on a global level and to promote a learning-by-doing approach through pilot projects in Jordan, Kenya and Burkina Faso.

These local activities focused on demonstrating new approaches, directed towards delivering practical improvements in sustainable energy access for refugees and host communities.

Throughout the 28-month programme, IMC has undertaken the following:

  • Developed a theory of change and logframe, along with nested logframes for each workstream to report monthly progress.
  • Produced a mid-term progress review.
  • Reviewed monitoring and evaluation (M&E) plans designed by the implementing partners.
  • M&E reporting.
  • Supported MEI in discussions with DFID regarding M&E of the project.
  • Five learning papers highlighting key challenges or successes encountered.
  • In-country field visits to Jordan, Kenya and Burkina Faso.
  • A gender-based violence study in Kakuma, Kenya.

IMC has produced the final evaluation for MEI. The Final Evaluation report has been submitted in October 2018’. Furthermore, IMC are supporting the MEI team throughout a four month extension period designed to disseminate the Phase II knowledge products and monitor the pilot projects. IMC activities include providing guidance and input to the dissemination and research uptake strategy and designing the monitoring framework.
