Español|Português|Français

This wiki is a CI-wide collaboration space, created with the aim of providing with regular updates on resources and tools for different elements of the CARE International agenda around Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning. It is also a space where CARE colleagues from around the world can provide input and exchange ideas and experiences.

The wiki aims to provide you with:
  • Resources on how CARE conceptualizes MEL (approach, principles and standards) and CARE's frameworks to demonstrate its contribution to lasting change

  • Practical tools, guidance and resources on CARE's global database system: REACH and IMPACT data collected via the Project and Program Information and Impact Reporting system (PIIRS).

  • Practical tools, guidance and training opportunities on different aspects of MEL practice: setting up MEL systems; using qualitative and quantitative evaluation methods; translating evidence into learning and action: visualization tips; doing capacity building in MEL.

  • Information on the global MEL agenda and the teams behind these efforts: the CARE International MEL group, MEL community of practice and others.

For the first time, CARE is not only mapping its reach and impact data but also making it available to partners, donors, supporters and stakeholders, instead of simply via PIIRS.

The Reach and Impact map is a step in the process to become more accountable and accessible.
