Grants to this Grantee
for strengthening monitoring and evaluation to improve government performance and accountability  
Twende Mbele, hosted by the University of the Witwatersrand, is a peer learning partnership of African governments and regional organizations interested in using monitoring and evaluation (M&E) to strengthen government performance and accountability. The partnership aims to (a) stimulate demand to use M&E among governments, parliaments, and civil society; (b) share experience and learning in the use of M&E; and (c) support active collaboration in developing government M&E systems for a smaller group of core partners.
for support to document African evidence-informed policymaking and implementation  
The project will document at least eight African case studies of governments using and institutionalizing evidence. Co-authors include current and former government officials, and practitioners who work closely with African governments. The authors will produce a book, nine policy briefs, and six videos. They will also share lessons with policymakers, practitioners, and researchers.
