Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning during the COVID-19 Pandemic
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact in countries around the world, and USAID and its partners are responding to the pandemic at home and abroad. Response priorities include protecting the safety and health security of the global workforce, ensuring that USAID can continue its life-saving mission across the world, and supporting partner countries in their response to COVID-19.
USAID and its partners will continue to monitor, evaluate and learn from our programs as we respond to the changing operating environment. This page provides USAID with a forum for sharing tools, approaches and lessons for Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) during the global pandemic.
If you or your organization have resources to share with USAID, we encourage you to upload a resource or blog of your own. Or, you can send us an email at [email protected]. You can also visit the Community Contributions Page linked here to see more perspectives from the pandemic.
For general information on COVID-19 and its implications for USAID implementing partners, refer to USAID's COVID-19 Guidance for Implementing Partners. USAID implementing partners should also contact their Contracting Officer’s Representative(s) (COR) or Agreement Officer’s Representative(s) (AOR) and their Contracting Officer(s) (CO) or Agreement Officer(s) (AO).
