Facing up to complex challenges such as food security and climate change requires more than technical solutions alone. It is crucial that different stakeholders come together to examine an issue within its particular context and explore the best way forward. Our approach revolves around the planning, monitoring and evaluation processes involved in managing development initiatives. Our comprehensive framework goes way beyond monitoring and evaluation (M&E) by stressing the importance of engaging people in change processes. We help form effective strategies based on sound situation analyses, and ensure M&E processes that facilitate adaptive management and informed decisions for sustainable development.
