Programme-level Monitoring and Evaluation Services for the Strategic Climate Institutions Programme and Climate High Level Investment Programme

SCIP builds organisational capacity within the Government of Ethiopia (GoE), the private sector and civil society, to enable achievement of MDGs and contribute to the improved management of climate change risks and opportunities. CHIP helps to build climate resilience and promote low carbon development by channelling UK climate finance to investment opportunities in Ethiopia.

LTS is contracted by DFID for design and implementation of M&E systems for SCIP and CHIP at the programme-level.

  • These are innovative programmes, so learning about their effectiveness is important in Ethiopia and at the global level.
  • The 2 programmes provide resources to a wide range of stakeholders in Ethiopia, including governmental bodies, academia, civil society organisations, development partners and the private sector.

LTS is fully responsible for the M&E and learning for both of them.


Ethiopia recognises climate change as a risk and an opportunity to its ambitious development goals. These two innovative programmes set out to build the institutional capacity and funding environment required (across Government, private sector and civil society) to generate a strategic and coordinated response to climate change. Effective, ongoing M&E was required to ensure the programmes could learn and adapt during implementation.  DFID also has commitments on transparency and accountability; and to report on ICF key performance indicators.


LTS services to support this challenge included:

  • Design and implementation of the programme M&E strategies including the establishment of baseline, conducting annual reviews, delivering periodic evaluations. This included the use of the following evaluation methods: ToC analysis, contribution analysis, VfM and CBA, case study analysis, portfolio analysis, a capacity assessment analysis using an innovative and uniquely tailored capacity assessment tool, replicability assessment and rubrics to measure changes in complex processes.
  • Facilitating synergies, coordination and harmonisation with instrument-level ME&L to ensure that evidence and recommendations are actionable and utilisation focused.
  • Strengthening of M&E capability, building broader organisational capacity for monitoring specific climate change adaptation and mitigation processes and initiatives.

Design and delivering effective learning and communication of best practices.

Value and benefits

Through close cooperation between programme and instrument level M&E, there is a unique opportunity to make a major intellectual and practical contribution to the way that support for the climate change response in developing countries is monitored and evaluated.
