Mercy Corps is leading the project “Market Opportunities in the Somali Region of Ethiopia (MORE)” over a 54 month period. Mercy Corps is working with the Somali Regional State to provide equitable and visible improvements in livelihoods and resilience, and increasing the economic opportunities of vulnerable groups.
LTS International is providing monitoring and evaluation (M&E) support to the consortium led by Mercy Corps. LTS has designed the Monitoring and Evaluation System, which will be based on a theory of change approach. The LTS did an ex-ante Cost Benefit Analysis for the six proposed interventions; and designed a rolling baseline survey approach that will enable statistical attribution of impact to programme activities.
In the remainder of the programme, LTS will provide training for staff on the M&E System, deliver annual household surveys, and evaluate the programme at the mid-term and final points.
