This group brings together modellers and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) grantees to model productivity gains brought about as a result of BMGF grantees work.
Ongoing monitoring, learning and evaluation (MLE) is critical to help project implementers and their funders understand how they are progressing towards desired impacts. But selecting the right indicators and collecting relevant data is an enormous challenge, requiring expertise, and staff time. Supporting Evidence Based Interventions (SEBI) are working with staff from eleven livestock development projects funded by the BMGF to develop a reporting system for MLE at the project and portfolio level.
