Project Summary: 

The goal of USAID/Somalia Monitoring Learning Project-2 (SMLP-2) is to establish a third-party monitoring (TPM) system to collect data that verifies partner reported outputs and selected outcomes, and to deduce lessons learned from humanitarian programs in Somalia funded by BHA/Somalia. The overall goal of SMLP-2 is to increase BHA/Somalia’s access to independent, verifiable data related to the 1) quantity and quality of activities delivered, and 2) performance of BHA-funded programs in Somalia. This increased access to data will allow BHA/Somalia to make more evidence-based program design, implementation, and strategy decisions.
