United Nations- Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL)-
Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL)- according to the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) human-rights-based MEL is an essential element to achieving sustainable development goals (SDG), ensuring accountability to key stakeholders, and improving ongoing and future projects. P3 for Humanity can work with your country and regional office through the human-rights based design, implementation, and utilization of MEL to provide you and your implementing partners with independent, relevant, reliable, and time-sensitive information that contributes to improved project design, implementation, and evidence-based modifications in both a humanitarian and development setting.
Our team of UN MEL experts have worked with UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, WFP, OCHA, UNHCR, and UNWOMEN. P3 for Humanity can:
Design, collect and report on third-party monitoring data to provide you with accurate, reliable, and timely data to understand the project progress against mutually agreed upon project targets so that the project team can make evidence-based decisions to improve the ongoing project.
Design, implement and report on utilization-focused independent evaluations. We will conduct independent evaluations that examine project effectiveness and impact, provide evidence-based lessons learned and actionable recommendations to improve project relevance to national development goals and intended beneficiaries, coherence, management and efficiency, effectiveness, impact, and sustainability.
Build the MEL capacity of UN staff, implementing partners, and government counterparts. We believe building MEL capacity is an important component to foster sustainable development. Every training will be tailored to could include topics such as Results-Based Management, Theory of Change, and Results Framework/Logic Model; MEL design including human rights, gender, social inclusion, and DAC Criteria; MEL preparation, implementation, and management; Utilization-based MEL including Management Response. This fosters an institution’s learning culture, encourages evidence-based project management and project design building the knowledge and skills needed for project monitor, evaluation, and data utilization and learning.
