In April 2019, WFD launched a new and innovative activity and outcome monitoring system called the Evidence and Impact Hub. We can report very good uptake and a large amount of usable data in our 8th month after launching it.
Our director of research and evaluation, Graeme Ramshaw, outlines how WFD is trying to walk the walk when it comes to prioritising cross-organisational learning and drawing lessons from and reflecting on our programming.
Governance and oversight of the democracy- and governance-support sector relies heavily on reporting, specifically reporting in a narrative format. However, that type of reporting, which for some parts of the sector have come to be largely synonymous with “monitoring”, is only useful for certain purposes and is limiting for a variety of reasons. How is WFD tackling the challenge?
