Monitoring and Evaluation Committee

Born from the Monitoring and Evaluation Task Force active during the year 2019, the Monitoring and Evaluation Committee was established as a permanent body by Alliance General Assembly 2019.

The Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC) was born with the aim of creating a network strategy on monitoring and evaluation and making evaluation and monitoring part of the Alliance working culture.

The concrete needs in terms of a strategy on Monitoring and Evaluation were recognized during Alliance Congressino 2019. Assessing the resolutions of the Congress 2014 concerning the topic of monitoring and evaluation, the Congressino confirmed that little progress was been made in terms of creating a common evaluative framework measuring quality and impact of our IVS projects.

Congressino identified the benefits of developing a common evaluative framework as the following:

  • the better assessment of the quality of the work done within the Alliance which will enable the focused improvement of the network projects;
  • increased visibility through the exploitation of the results of data analyzed and evidence-based proof of the impact of our IVS projects;
  • possibility to use results to demonstrate the impact of our work by for better advocacy and potential to increase volunteer exchanges within the network.

A roadmap on IVS impacts has been worked on during Congressino 2019 and will be used as a basis for MEC future work.

MEC will focus on:

  • Assess & revise evaluation forms the Alliance elaborated for volunteers, camp leaders and local hosts;
  • Create shared and common tools (common evaluative framework) to be used inside the Alliance and enable better assessment, visibility and advocacy;
  • Experiment the tools with a group of voluntary MOs;
  • Adjust the tools according to the results of the test run and repeat the evaluation cycle, every year;
  • Coordinate with other initiatives on impact of IVS to enhance our understanding, support them and make the best use of them.

The specific tasks of MEC for the current year are described in the strategic Plan of Action 2021-2022 adopted by the General Assembly of members 2020.
