Agricultural Innovation Marketplace

A partnership to enhance agricultural innovation and development

 

Strategies and Procedures

M&E are essential to ensure quality and improve performance, results and MKTPlace supported project impacts. The main objectives of MKTPlace M&E activities are to allow the analysis of strategies, learning and adjustment of actions. The use of qualitative and quantitative indicators helps to measure results and impact, minimize risks and increase trust among partners. M&E activities also contribute to increase accountability to stakeholders.


Strategies

The MKTPlace monitoring and evaluation strategy is divided in two: Program and Project.

  • Internal (MKTPlace partners, project co-leaders) and External: (independent consultants): monitor and evaluate activities and analyze successes and shortcomings
  • Quantitative and qualitative indicators
  • Results systematization and sharing

Tools

  • External program evaluation
  • Technical and financial midterm and final reports
  • In situ visits
  • Knowledge sharing events (workshops, fora)
