Impact Measurement

Monitoring and evaluation mechanisms demonstrate accountability, enable innovative and responsive programming, and improve our understanding of what constitutes effective development. Palladium’s Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning practice provides leadership for evidence-based collaborative learning, using the results of our work to improve decisions affecting programme outcomes. We ensure the findings, recommendations, and conclusions of our evaluations are accessible to all stakeholders and contribute to collective learning. Our work encompasses a broad spectrum of development sectors, including health, governance, security, agriculture, global climate change, and economic growth.
