USAID Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Activity Overview

The USAID Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Activity (the Activity) is designed to ensure USAID’s activities in Jordan achieve their intended results through monitoring and evaluation, strategic assessments, and USAID’s Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting approach (CLA). The Activity helps USAID create a dynamic learning environment among development actors, focused on innovation, quality, and knowledge sharing. Through the Activity Accelerator, a rapid procurement mechanism, a cohort of Jordanian firms works with the Activity team to successfully deliver activities while simultaneously strengthening their management and compliance systems. The approach provides USAID with high-quality monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) services across its portfolio, builds the capacity of local MEL institutions and ensures programs meaningfully incorporate local participation. The Activity team will ensure program sustainability by building the technical and institutional capacity of one or more local firms that are capable of managing the follow-on MEL Activity in the future.
