Improving results requires an understanding of what works and what does not. LTS has worked in partnership with clients worldwide for over 30 years to help them understand the effectiveness, efficiency and impact of their work and to identify lessons for future programs and policies.
Through demand-driven, rigorous evaluations and robust monitoring systems, our work supports adaptive management and learning, enabling the use of evaluation evidence in decision making to improve the execution and successful delivery of results. We have experience in designing and implementing tailored MEL activities that draw on a wide range of tools, methods and approaches to engage stakeholders and deliver robust evaluation evidence, reliable and accurate monitoring data and tailored learning information. Collaboratively with our client, we formulate objectives, principles, strategies, and implementation frameworks for MEL, setting out the critical informational requirements at each level of the results framework (or M&E matrix) including roles and responsibilities, how this information will be collected, and how to address learning needs.
Our MEL strength reflects our practical experience in designing and implementing evaluations and learning assignments primarily within the areas of forestry, conservation, development and climate change initiatives, where we have a deep understanding of key drivers for successes, best practice and lessons learned. We also have a growing expertise beyond these sectors.
