Learning Review 2017
Our challenge, however, is often not so much about generating evidence, as demonstrated through our research streams and increasingly our internal and external monitoring, evaluation and learning services. It is about how we use what we have generated to influence others and our own work. We often speak of producing ‘lessons learned’; actually what we are doing is identifying lessons from our experiences, research and evaluations, as we have done in this Learning Review. If we assign actions against some of these and then track progress, it is likely that we are able to make the necessary change. This means having monitoring, evaluation and learning systems and processes that allow us to do this effectively. In this regard and as the articles within the Learning Review on ‘Evaluation trends and ‘MEAL Approaches’ show, it is a very exciting time to be at Action Against Hunger. I am delighted that we are channelling our efforts and expertise in this area.
Thank you to everyone that has contributed their valuable time in working with us to develop this year’s content. I hope you enjoy reading the Learning Review as much as we have enjoyed developing it. Let us together create opportunities to share our learnings and lessons more widely to advocate for what we stand for. Because we will never give up. Until the world is free from hunger.
