appreciated by CRS and we’d like to promote it to all emergency
19. Assume a leadership role in the coordination effort among
humanitarian actors in the zone. Coordination is not easy and requires
the initiative of all actors for it to be effective. Leadership in this area
provides multiple benefits:
• Your agency is aware of what others are doing so that you can
eliminate any duplications and proactively fill any gaps;
• Your agency becomes influential in affecting change within your
projects’ operating environment;
• Your agency becomes visible to others including potential donors
20. Assess results using M&E tools.
Questions that surface in the RTE can be investigated using the project’s
M&E system. This will ensure the system is used for decision making by
collecting data that are valuable and prioritized by project management.
• EARLI will be using post-distribution surveys to learn about the
actual targeting methods applied in the remaining villages, whether
participants are satisfied with the alternate targeting methods and
from their perspective were the most vulnerable members chosen?
As participants hadn’t received payment at the time data was
collected, more information should be collected regarding who in the
household spends the cash? Who decides what to buy and what is
purchased? Monthly reporting formats can also capture additional
lessons learned and good practices identified throughout the course
of the project.
• The M&E System will also be the vehicle for collecting data on market
prices before and after the payments to determine the extent to which
CFW is increasing food prices in the region.
• M&E can provide the tools for documenting what is learned using the
complaint committee mechanism.
• Given the need to know completion rates in order to make payments
every two weeks, data collected daily and synthesized weekly should
be available at a minimum every two weeks rather than monthly.
