The Global Learning for Adaptive Management initiative (GLAM)

The Global Learning for Adaptive Management initiative (GLAM) – ODI

The Global Learning for Adaptive Management (GLAM) initiative, funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is a globally networked learning alliance that aims to actively identify, operationalise and promote rigorous evidence-based approaches to adaptive management.

Established to help catalyse the wider uptake of adaptive management principles and practices, the four-year initiative will provide tailored guidance and practical support to practitioners and policy-makers of adaptive management. It will generate quality evidence and learning about effective monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) for adaptive management (AM) (MEL4AM), and act as a catalyst, champion and convenor to change thinking and practice.

The GLAM initiative is implemented by a consortium, which is led by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), with the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Oxfam, International Rescue Committee (IRC), Oxford Policy Management (OPM), Social Impact and ThoughtWorks.
