Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability, & Learning
Through demand-driven, rigorous evaluations, and robust monitoring systems, our work supports adaptive management and learning, enabling the use of evaluation evidence in decision making to improve the implementation and successful delivery of results. We have experience in designing and implementing tailored MEAL activities that draw on a wide range of tools, methods, and approaches to engage stakeholders and deliver robust evaluation evidence, reliable and accurate monitoring data, and tailored learning information.
Collaboratively with our client, we formulate objectives, principles, strategies, and implementation frameworks for MEAL, setting out the critical informational requirements at each level of the results framework including roles and responsibilities, data collection modality, and promotion for tailored learning practices.
Strategic Planning and Development
We examine what organizations are doing to stay relevant and competitive in this fast-paced world, and which ones are doing it best. We then strategize using smart tools and global resources in order to understand the implications of every choice our clients can make. Get in touch to learn more about how this service can help you.
Knowledge Management and Innovation
We place the utility of evidence at the center of our work, which informs how we collect data, present evidence, and facilitates learning. We employ a variety of learning and knowledge-sharing techniques to enhance the creation, access, and utilization of pertinent data in order to enhance program performance. NSDation evaluates M&E systems within organizations so as to assist clients in modifying existing approaches or creating new systems. Thus, we assist our clients in collecting, managing, and utilizing data, resulting in more informed programs with greater impact.
Organizational Development and Capacity Building
We help organizations, governments, community-based organizations, and civil society organizations craft development agendas, plan for change and take effective action. Our capacity development work goes beyond knowledge transfer, relies on co-creation and co-implementation, incorporates technology in creative ways, and agilely works within a complex, adaptive system.
Who We’ve Worked With
The mission entailed evaluating the three-year emergency program and recovery projects by directly engaging with beneficiaries and facilitating informative discussions to gather feedback on the services and aid provided. Phone calls were made to various beneficiary groups, including males and females, to ensure that hard-to-reach beneficiaries were included in the study. The findings of the evaluation influenced the client's future strategy, which included allocating more resources to support local partners and investing in cash-based programs.
The Center for International Private Enterprise
The evaluation helped the project team better understand the views of the project participants around all aspects of activities and events. The findings informed the next annual plan of the project based on lessons learned and recommendations provided at the midterm review study. The study used REAM methods and assessed the outcomes and impact of distinct approaches demonstrated by the project while providing durable solutions to build resilient livelihoods and social cohesion among refugee and host communities.
The study revealed the extent to which a women-led and designed mobile platform contributed to enhancing women’s protection and empowerment through the provision of information on rights and access to services for women. The research tracked how women users interacted with the platform and how it impacted on attitudes, perceptions, and experiences of its users and provided recommendations on how best women and girls can learn about, access, or even impact empowerment and protection services in Jordan. This research also provided valuable data to help with advocating for the government to prioritize gender-responsive public services; to address financial and service-level barriers to mobile inclusion.
Syrian Association for Relief and Development
This mission required the creation of a Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability, and Learning Country Strategy, the design and implementation of appropriate Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning systems throughout the Program, and the introduction of innovative MEAL tools. Support the implementation of accountability procedures, including community feedback and response mechanisms for humanitarian programs. Support compliance and assessment of quality benchmarks and building capacities of staff and partners in promoting accountability and participation were also a part of the project.
The Multi-Sector Needs Assessment provided an overview of the critical needs of affected populations in displaced populations' areas, allowing humanitarian partners to provide appropriate assistance. Furthermore, it contributed to the development of partners' strategic and annual plans for 2023.
The evaluation used both quantitative and qualitative research methods, and the findings were mainly based on primary data collected from multiple households, key informants, and community members, with secondary data serving as a supplement.
German Red Cross
The Sphere in Urban Setting training package was created in collaboration with GRC. This training promotes an inclusive, rights-based, and people-centered response to disasters in urban areas by contextualizing and applying Sphere minimum humanitarian standards.
Leading with Impact Training
The program aims to introduce participants to the essential skills to successfully lead themselves and others in the field of humanitarian work. Participants will be guided to discover their strengths and areas of development based on their behavioral styles and leadership skills. They will be guided on how to leverage their strengths and develop their weaknesses in order to adapt and connect with others in a more effective way.
