Jordan Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Activity Overview
The Jordan Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Activity (“the Activity”) is designed to ensure USAID’s activities in Jordan achieve their intended results through monitoring and evaluation, strategic assessments, and USAID’s Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting approach (CLA). The Activity helps USAID create a dynamic learning environment among development actors focused on innovation, quality MEL practices, and knowledge sharing. Through the Activity Accelerator, a rapid procurement mechanism, a cohort of Jordanian firms work with the Activity team to successfully deliver projects while simultaneously strengthening their management and compliance systems.
This approach provides USAID with high-quality MEL services across its portfolio, builds the capacity of local MEL organizations, and ensures USAID programs meaningfully empower and enhance local participation. The Activity team ensures program sustainability by building the technical and institutional capacity of one or more local organizations to be capable of managing the MEL contract that follows the Activity.
