Monitoring and evaluation
Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is an integral part of much of our work. We use it to assess progress towards sustainability, to measure project or program efficiency and effectiveness and to provide opportunities to learn and to better practice. Our extensive skills in a breadth of research methods from highly quantitative to highly qualitative means we can custom design approaches to suit the need.
Sustainability indicators and evaluation - we can assess the economic, environmental and social sustainability of technologies, programs, strategies and responses to inform policy and action. We use a variety of tools and frameworks to guide evaluation, including integrated resource planning and sustainability indicators.
Evaluation of resource efficiency programs - we provide services for robust evaluation of the effectiveness of demand management or similar programs through the use of detailed statistical analysis, customer database analysis and detailed modeling.
Monitoring and Evaluation in the international development sector - we directly conduct external evaluations and work with clients to contribute to improving their M&E practice through systems thinking approaches, designing for organisational learning outcomes, innovative M&E methodologies and capacity building in M&E.
Enabling learning through monitoring and evaluation - we help provide clients with the tools to critically reflect at an individual and organisational level.
Big picture questions
- How can we improve monitoring and evaluation practice to enable greater learning?
- How can we meaningfully combine quantitative and qualitative methods in monitoring and evaluation?
