Collecting data on project outcomes and social impact at the community level while strengthening the internal monitoring capacity of government ministries.
In Yemen, IRD collected data on project outcomes and social and environmental impacts at the community level. IRD assessed civil works projects for completeness and compliance, and evaluated the status of the civil works to determine their ability to function for intended purposes. Under the World Bank-funded program, IRD field engineers conducted informal interviews with beneficiaries to record their reactions to and satisfaction with the civic works project. IRD also provided direct support to program management units (PMUs) and Yemeni ministries to strengthen internal monitoring capacity in a collaborative and evidence-based framework.
