USAID El Salvador Mentoring Sessions Emphasize Importance of Adaptive Management

The importance of adaptive management to USAID-funded programs was emphasized at recent USAID/El Salvador Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Initiative (ME&L El Salvador) mentoring sessions.

Roberto Samayoa, chief of party of the Education and Coexistence for Schools and Communities Free of Violence project, holds his certificate of participation next to Randal Thompson, ME&L El Salvador chief of party.

The mentoring sessions, taking place Aug. 22 and Sept. 3, 2019, focused on:

  • USAID ADS 201 Policy on USAID’s operational model for planning, delivering, assessing, and adapting development programming in a given region or country to advance U.S. foreign policy
  • How program cycles are based on a country development cooperation strategy (CDCS) and regional development cooperation strategies (RDCSs) and the impact on evaluation and adaptation
  • How program activities contribute to a USAID Mission’s strategic objectives and how to manage the contribution
  • How to practice adaptive management in program activities

Mira Ibrisimovic, knowledge management specialist, conducted both sessions, which were designed to provide practical hands-on information participants could use on their jobs. The sessions averaged 14 participants from 13 USAID implementing partners.

USAID/El Salvador awarded ME&A the ME&L El Salvador task order in 2016 under the Policy, Planning and Learning-Learning, Evaluation and Research (PPL-LER) IDIQ Contract to provide evaluation, monitoring, and assessment services for USAID Missions and Offices worldwide.
