Monitoring, Evaluation, Research, and Learning (MERL)

We harness demand-driven knowledge and promote the application of learning for better program design, implementation, and evaluation, leading to increased impact. We work with our clients to identify their knowledge gaps, capture and analyze information, and package and disseminate lessons learned to the right audiences. We identify research and evaluation questions, determine methodologies for sampling and data collection, create data collection instruments, conduct data analysis, and find innovative ways for reporting actionable findings.
