SCS Global’s purpose is to identify and develop effective, evidence-based approaches to strengthen civil society and media organizations as key actors in the development process. SI’s role on this award is to support rigorous Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning in SCS implementation.
SI is collaborating with USAID, academics, sector specialists, and research firms to conduct evaluations and research into activities such as government service delivery and accountability, supporting independent media, and citizen security. SI is measuring how these activities impact democracy, human rights, and governance around the world.
Social Impact assisted USAID’s Center of Excellence on Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance (DRG) in a targeted research project to better understand how and why different technical sectors such as health, agriculture, and education are integrating common DRG principles (e.g. participation, inclusion, transparency, and accountability) into their programs.
Social Impact provided robust monitoring and rigorous evaluation of a democracy and governance program in Indonesia. USAID/Indonesia’s Kinerja (performance) program addressed the supply and demand sides of local public service delivery. RTI International engaged Social Impact as the independent subcontractor focused solely on monitoring and evaluation (M&E) activities for the program.
SI supplements the monitoring and program management efforts of USAID/Lebanon to evaluate program performance in the country. The information SI gathers and program support services we provide through this project help the Mission make informed decisions and improves the management of Implementing Partners’ performance.
