CIVIC’s updated monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) approach is tied to CIVIC’s 2021-2025 strategic plan. It is designed to track data on CIVIC’s organizational goal, results, and thematic priorities. CIVIC reports on organization-level standard quantitative and qualitative indicators. These indicators provide data to assess the impact of CIVIC’s programs.
CIVIC’s custom approach has five elements that facilitate rigorous monitoring, evaluation, and learning:
- Learning and evidence-building;
- Systems thinking; and
- Adaptive management.
With learning and evidence-building at the center, these elements provide a framework to effectively and efficiently monitor, evaluate, and learn from CIVIC’s programs at both program and organizational levels.
