Adaptive monitoring: How do we learn from our programs? Anahi Ayala Iacucci, Internews
We all collect incredibly useful data that we we often don’t even use. What can this data do for our own programs? How can we use it to create and sustain a constructive relationship with our partners. How can we better connect the “M” to the “L” in MERL? And how can we do it in low tech geographies? Internews will share how we used M&E data for program adaptation over a 3-year project, and how that same data was also used to hold other agencies accountable.
