Over the last 30 years, INTRAC has witnessed many positive examples of transferring power and agency to partners in the global South. Monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) is one sphere where much of the language, practices, and power are strongly rooted in the global North. We are a still a very long way from equitable partnerships. To get there will mean re-thinking the way that MEL is approached and undertaken.

Join us for this free webinar on 20th July – the second of two which are part of the celebrations of INTRAC’s 30th anniversary. You will explore through short inputs from sector specialists and peer discussions key strategic issues for MEL as we seek to #shiftthepower.

Speakers and topics

  • “Community-led M&E” – Franck A. Sombo (WACSI)
  • “Culturally and contextually appropriate and effective MEL systems” – Sophie Kange (DENIVA)
  • “Knowledge asymmetries and participation deficits” – Alison McKinley (Comic Relief)
  • “Tearfund’s localised framework” – Catriona Dejean (Tearfund)

Catriona Dejean has kindly agreed to step in for Anindita Majumdar, who is unfortunately no longer able to join us.

Participants will also hear an introduction from INTRAC Chief Executive Kate Newman, and closing remarks from INTRAC Principal Consultant Catherine Allen.
