Key Principles and Safeguards for Monitoring, Evaluation & Adaptation
Continual learning and improvement is the goal. Bad news can become good news if teams take prompt, informed action. Positive results can be better understood and reinforced as the initiative continues.
The consultation process should center on the IPLCs’ concerns and priorities, which should inform the Monitoring, Evaluation & Adaptation indicators.
Equity & Inclusion:
Given the well-known adage, “what gets measured gets done,” it’s important to include diverse voices in setting up a system to assess the progress of TNC’s human rights-based approach.
Accountability can be assured when parties take responsibility for their actions based on the information produced by a strong Monitoring, Evaluation & Adaptation system.
Overarching Good Faith:
The information generated by a strong Monitoring, Evaluation & Adaptation system is only as good as how it’s used. Adaptive management of a human rights-based approach requires a commitment to turning information into action through collaboration and accountability.
