Areas of Work
GEI supports developing countries in strengthening their monitoring and evaluation systems to help governments gather and use evidence that improves the lives of their citizens. We do this by:
Providing country governments with diagnostic, technical, and other advisory support services
GEI works closely with developing country governments that seek to improve or strengthen monitoring, evaluation and the use of evidence in their countries. Applying GEI’s integrated systems-based approach, we provide diagnostic, technical, and other advisory support services to help governments at every step on this journey. From helping governments define needs, goals and opportunities, to suggesting solutions tailored to the local context, to supporting implementation.
Strengthening the capacities of policymakers, evaluators, and other M&E professionals
Through a range of training, learning and professional development activities, GEI equips government decision-makers, evaluators and other M&E stakeholders with the tools and skills required to understand the role of M&E and evidence in decision-making; to gather, analyze, and use evaluative knowledge; to conduct evaluations; and to better manage and use M&E systems.
Developing, Curating and Amplifying Knowledge on M&E
GEI captures and curates innovative M&E knowledge as well as practical on-the-ground experience - sharing it globally and locally. We facilitate knowledge transfer across geographic and cultural boundaries, especially focusing on South-South exchange and how to adapt global lessons and best practices to local contexts. GEI seeks to become a global resource for local and global M&E knowledge.
