The Global Learning for Adaptive Management (GLAM) is an initiative envisioned as a globally networked learning alliance that aims to actively identify, operationalise and promote rigorous evidence-based approaches to adaptive management. GLAM has a legacy of research on effective monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) for Adaptive management (MEL4AM) and a library focused on adaptive and MEL4AM work.

This paper describes how adaptive management can be fostered if participatory 'evaluative thinking' activities are used to analyze assumptions in theory of change models.
Stacey Young, from USAID's Office of Learning, Evaluation and Research, provides detailed information about collaborating, learning and adapting within the Program Cycle.
