MONITORING & EVALUATION
“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt
EAMDA places significant emphasis on its knowledge and continuous learning of the ever changing methodologies used in catalyzing transformation within agricultural value chains. EAMDA undertakes each of its engagements with a keen eye placed on identifying levers that can be utilized to fast track gains and inform on more effective implementation of future programs.
In line with this principle, EAMDA's M&E experts, integrate measures aligned to its organisational-level monitoring and evaluation framework, so as to keep track of activities, monitor progress and evaluate performance and impact, as well as account for project resources long before external evaluators are brought on board by the client to evaluate the program under review.
"To know values is to know the meaning of the market."
EAMDA fully understands that the objective of inclusive market system development is to catalyze a process that results in a market system that is competitive, inclusive and resilient.
This means that the system actors are not just able to effectively innovate, upgrade and add value to their products and services in their quest to match market demand and maintain or grow market share, but they do so while delivering a sustainable flow of benefits to a range of actors, including the poor and otherwise marginalized communities, as well as to society as a whole.
EAMDA facilitates the system actors to address, absorb and overcome the imminent shocks present in the market, policy environment, resource base and any other aspect of the system, so as to achieve sustainable impact at scale.
