Final Evaluation of BRIDGE intervention, implemented by Mercy Corps in the West Nile. Between May and July U-Learn supported Mercy Corps, an FCDO BRAER partner, in conducting the final evaluation of their BRIDGE intervention. The intervention focused on the implementation of the Market System Development approach and on the Innovation Centers launch in the West-Nile. The evaluation used different criteria to assess the impact, effectiveness and sustainability of the intervention. Although the full results are confidential, lessons learned and recommendations for similar interventions were disseminated at the Livelihoods and Resilience Working Group in August 2021.
about our research activities
The activities under our research component consist of yearly in-depth explorations of one of the topics identified under the Learning Hub agenda.
These so-called deep dives aim to fill knowledge gaps in the response and provide robust data for learning. Deep dive topics are selected in consultation with stakeholders including NGOs, government and donors and preliminary results are validated by beneficiary communities. The findings from the deep dive assessment are presented to discussed with stakeholders in the response, thus facilitating the uptake of the findings and triggering discussion for future programme improvement. Under this work stream, U-Learn also carries out other research pieces such as good practice studies, and ad-hoc assessments under the scope of the themes identified with the Learning Agenda and consultations with key stakeholders of the Ugandan humanitarian landscape.
