Prioritising Competing M&E Needs and Demands in an Adaptive Programme: 7 Takeaways

Julie Adkins, Gloria Sikustahili, Japhet Makongo, Simon Milligan

Summary: Institutions for Inclusive Development (I4ID) is a five-year programme ending this year, funded by UKAid and Irish Aid. I4ID works with government, representative institutions, civil society and the private sector to strengthen institutional arrangements i.e. policies, laws, rules, norms and values to become more inclusive and accountable so that economic growth and services bring more benefits to women, youth, and poor and vulnerable people. I4ID has been exploring new ways of tackling wicked problems in a variety of areas, such as solid waste management, urban planning, inclusive education, and menstrual health. I4ID uses adaptive programming which means putting learning at the centre and being politically smart and locally led. As a programme designed to be agile and opportunistic, therefore we devised a flexible M&E framework to allow for learning and fast feedback loops so that staff and partners can make informed decisions about if and how to adjust strategy and tactics during implementation. In this blog we aspire to share lessons we learned about M&E in an adaptive programme.
