Global Learning for Adaptive Management
If donors are to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals it is essential that policies, programmes, and interventions become more effective.
Adaptive management has gained traction as an approach to improving development interventions by recognizing that strategies, project designs and implementation plans may need to be altered as new learning emerges or the development context shifts.
The Global Learning for Adaptive Management (GLAM) programme will support adaptive management in DFID and USAID programmes. It will also establish a center for learning about adaptive management. Programme duration will be up to 5 years.
The main programme activities are likely to be:
— supporting the design and use of monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) systems for adaptive management,
— increasing donor and partner (both international and local) capacities to use MEL systems and implement adaptive management practices,
— building consensus, encouraging coordination and establishing standards for MEL practices in adaptive programmes,
— evaluating and learning about adaptive management.
Expected outcomes include greater use of robust evidence and MEL systems for adaptive management within global development communities, and greater supply, demand, and quality of MEL services available for adaptive development programmes.
