Mozambique Monitoring and Evaluation Mechanism and Services (MMEMS)

BACKGROUND

Over the past several years, USAID/Mozambique has managed development assistance activities designed to achieve a wide-ranging set of results in the areas of health; agriculture, environment, and business; education; and democracy, human rights, and governance. Disaster assistance is a growing focus area. USAID provides development assistance in the form of grants, cooperative agreements, and contracts to a wide range of implementing partners (IPs), including: the Government of the Republic of Mozambique; international and local non-governmental organizations; other donors; other U.S. Government agencies; and public international organizations through more than 70 separate mechanisms. 
This complex portfolio, implemented over a large geographic area, requires strong management for results based on high-quality data and robust evaluations. USAID/Mozambique designed MMEMS to provide capacity building and technological solutions to USAID’s IPs and our own staff and to assist us with transforming our data into learning and adapting.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

MMEMS aims to improve USAID/Mozambique’s Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning systems based on U.S. priorities and Agency guidance and policies. This will ensure that learning and adapting become easier, faster, more useful, and more cost-effective. MMEMS will include participatory and novel methodologies to engage internal and external program stakeholders. MMEMS will also include participatory learning and knowledge-sharing components for improved implementation and enhanced organizational learning. 

EXPECTED RESULTS/IMPACTS

•    Improve the capacity of USAID/Mozambique staff to effectively manage and learn from monitoring and evaluation activities. 
•    Monitor and enhance the quality of performance data for better evidence-based decision making. 
•    Generate high quality evaluations and assessments for USAID/Mozambique in an efficient and timely manner.
