Monitoring and Evaluation with an Edge

With over 25 years of experience in the field we support organisations to identify their social and environmental impact and mitigate ESG risks. We help formulate solutions whilst improving the relationship between local stakeholders and our clients. Our solutions are a blend of traditional monitoring and evaluation know-how with cutting edge technology.

A Bottom-up Focus

Communication with local stakeholders is integral to our solution. We believe that through clear and culturally aware communication we ensure the sustainability of future operations

The future of M&E

Our digital solutions accelerate the transition from labour intensive field-based evaluations to the real time supervision of highly complex programmes.

We learn from our past to build a better future

Remote Monitoring

“Ground-truth” verifiable data for the efficient monitoring of aid effectiveness

Combining field teams, a collaborative approach and Information and Communication Technology – this is what gives us the possibility of engaging in Complexity Evaluation, to promote better decisions – to the benefit of decision makers, but also the populations that are the true actors of change.

It includes the use of:

Smartphones, cameras and recording equipment

Local sensors for infrastructure (roads, health centres), geolocalisation

Drones and commercial satellite imagery

Open source software such as for natural language analysis

High-end conferencing and visual projection tools

A customised client platform

Our monitoring is based on a consensus approach to the production of data, and on the transcription of impact evaluation into clear impact representations, or dashboards, that are easy for stakeholders to understand and to use.
