Monitoring and Evaluation Report: Year 2

Published on 10 February 2014

This report relates to the second year of the Institute of Development Studies’ (IDS) Accountable Grant (AG), a complex four-year grant, involving seven Outputs (six key policy themes and one policy response and evaluation output), 20 Sub-themes, 68 Activity Domains, and over 350 planned and supplemental Level 2 Outputs (or Policy Products). Level 2 Outputs include evidence reports, reviews, briefs, events, guidelines and other tools that aim to influence the policy process.

The scale and diversity of activity under the grant, the dynamic policy environments in which it operates, the number of people and partners involved, together with the imperative to deliver within tight deadlines, highlights the need for a simple yet robust monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system. First and foremost this system should provide the framework for analysing the level of achievement against a logical framework.
