Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The IM Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) team supports all technical activities across the IM portfolio, providing an M&E lens and technical inputs in the planning of activities, monitoring against targets, reporting of results, and supporting dissemination of results. M&E activities include data compilation, analysis, and use to measure progress of interventions across all IM technical areas and guide the process of evidence-based decision-making in planning, implementing, and monitoring progress of activities across the project portfolio. Data use informs IM’s recommendations on approaches to improve service delivery. The M&E framework, objectives, indicators, and targets continue to serve as the guiding framework across project activities.
At the HQ level, the IM M&E team works closely with the IM Country Support Teams to develop and finalize country workplans, ensuring harmonization of indicators drawn from the approved global project monitoring plan (PMP), inclusion of outputs based on proposed activities, proposing M&E specific activities in country workplans, and planning for upcoming supportive supervision rounds in countries. Some planned outputs include guidance on preparing summary analyses or project data, guidance on using qualitative data during indicator data review, and a series of online recorded sessions on various M&E and data related topics for HQ and country-level as reference materials for teams. The M&E team serves as a technical resource for any questions regarding indicators, program monitoring, digital tools (project monitoring system and digital tools for supportive supervision), data management, analysis, and use, in addition to gathering data for internal and external reports and presentations.
At the country level, continued development of internal M&E capacity across the IM countries continues to be an important focus for the IM HQ M&E team. The IM HQ M&E team works closely to prepare for country Technical Reviews, ensure country teams collaborate on data quality assurance with any M&E partners in country, updating country PMPs based on new workplans, continue promoting data use for decision-making, and supporting M&E lens in technical activities.
In the coming year, the M&E team will continue to support key activities including preparing the Annual Report, and ASTMH presentations; and supporting analysis and presentation of project data, and developing M&E-focused learning briefs and blog posts; as well as general M&E support for technical activities.
