USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA) integrates monitoring, evaluation, and learning (ME&L) activities into emergency response and disaster risk reduction (DRR) programs worldwide to improve the quality of programming, enhance accountability, and ensure that USAID/OFDA-supported assistance is appropriate and effective. As a critical component of program management, ME&L helps USAID/OFDA and its partners understand the progress and results of recent and ongoing humanitarian responses so that future programs can better save lives, alleviate human suffering, and reduce the social and economic impacts of humanitarian emergencies. In FY 2014, USAID/OFDA provided more than $5,000,000 in direct support for ME&L activities, including more than $4,500,000 in USAID/OFDA-initiated third party monitoring programs; nearly $400,000 ME&L-focused humanitarian studies, analysis or applications; and more than $100,000 to support internal learning exercises. USAID/OFDA’s ME&L support complements and builds upon ME&L work conducted by partners in their existing humanitarian programs.
