Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning

IDG supports: monitoring of project implementation, so implementing partners and donor missions receive real-time feedback on how projects and programs are performing; external evaluations of projects and programs, at baselines, mid-points of implementation, and upon completion of activities; and learning so that implementing partners and donors can acquire lessons learned from monitoring and evaluations to adapt management of programs and improve performance.

Some of the ways our team conducts quantitative and qualitative data collection include:

  • Focus Group Discussions (FGDs)
  • Key Informant Interviews (KIIs)
  • Site visits/observation
  • Anthropometric measurements
  • Learning assessments using PAPI, CAPI, CATI
  • Self-administered/web surveys
  • Strengthening Media Systems (SMS)
  • Land lines and mobile phones as population and user survey tools
  • Detection in satellite and ground-based imagery to estimate growth and economic activity
  • Website and social media analytics to measure website visits, sentiments and content, and bounce rates/visit durations
  • Participatory tools such as walking ethnography, network analyses, mapping, stakeholder roundtables, and case studies
  • Cost-Benefit Analyses
