Monitoring & Evaluation

At Adam Smith International we believe that robust monitoring & evaluation (M&E) systems are vital for the delivery of successful development programmes. We have invested significantly in developing strong in-house M&E expertise, complemented by an impressive pool of trusted and highly-experienced M&E consultants.

We have a proven track record of developing and operating innovative and effective M&E systems, often at the cutting edge of industry thought and practice. Our approach is to build M&E systems that are capable of robustly capturing and reporting (or proving) impact and that consequently support better performance and decision making by management (improving impact).

Our M&E team has worked across the spectrum of development programmes, with a range of different donors. We have worked at all levels, from activity monitoring to strategic evaluations and have successfully delivered a diverse range of M&E functions. These include designing and managing M&E systems, building the capacity of local government partners, delivering M&E training seminars and undertaking M&E audits and independent evaluations.
