Monitoring and evaluation in crisis and conflict settings can be particularly challenging – from rapidly changing contexts to difficulties in obtaining reliable data to capacity limitations. Operating Units and Implementing Partners are looking for M&E practices that allow for flexibility and iteration, a phased process that increases in complexity as capacity increases, and that involves stakeholders in a participatory manner.
 
If you’re looking for an innovative approach to M&E that embodies the above practices, Rapid Feedback Monitoring, Evaluation, Research, and Learning (RF MERL), funded by the USAID Global Development Lab, could be a solution for you. This approach relies on the contextual knowledge of implementing partners and the M&E expertise of the RF MERL Consortium to improve activity design around areas of uncertainty. RF MERL strikes the balance between rigor and feasibility to design, implement, and test intervention options with the flexibility necessary to change directions based on new information—a critical concern in crisis and conflict settings. 
 
Please join us on July 25th at 9:00am EDT for a webinar with the RF MERL Consortium and ECCN to discuss the applicability of this approach to Education in Conflict and Crisis programming.
