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 programs to improve the quality of programming, enhance accountability, and ensure that USAID/OFDA-supported assistance is appropriate and effective. A critical component of program management, ME&L helps USAID/OFDA and its partners understand the progress and results of humanitarian responses so that future programs can better save lives, alleviate human suffering, and reduce the social and economic impacts of humanitarian emergencies. In fiscal year 2015, USAID/OFDA provided more than $5.3 million for third party monitoring programs and continued to support the development and implementation of impact evaluations and a guide for evaluating humanitarian programs. USAID/OFDA’s ME&L support complements and builds upon the efforts of the partners implementing USAID/OFDA-funded humanitarian programs.
