About the Event
SIAP SIAGA is a five-year program funded by the Australian Government to strengthen Indonesia’s management of disaster risk. The program uses an adaptive management approach to facilitate systems change programming. This has added an additional level of complexity to the design of the program’s MEL framework, given that there were few examples from similar programs to draw on.

This session will discuss the emerging lessons from the process of designing and implementing the program’s adaptive, systems-focused MEL framework, and highlight four key principles that can be replicated and adapted by M&E practitioners working on public policy and community development.
