LINC has been awarded the five-year, $7.4 million “USAID/Mexico Monitoring and Evaluation Support for Adaptation (MESA) Activity”.
The purpose of MESA is to strengthen the monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) and collaborating, learning, and adapting (CLA) systems and capacities within USAID/Mexico and its implementing partners, to support the implementation of USAID’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy and its engagement with the Embassy Mexico City Country Strategy.
Through MESA, the LINC consortium will design and conduct monitoring, evaluations, assessments, studies, collaboration mechanisms, and capacity building for the USAID/Mexico Mission, its implementing partners, and key stakeholders.
LINC’s services will include:
- Monitoring: Developing indicators and conducting data quality assurance, indicator data reporting, management, analysis, and visualizations.
- Evaluation and assessment: Conducting evaluation planning, design, learning, and dissemination; assessments and other studies to inform activity design.
- Collaboration and capacity building: Supporting and facilitating CLA processes and engagements with stakeholders and communities of practice, and MEL and CLA capacity building.
All services under MESA will use an inclusion-based approach.
LINC’s Managing Director, Rich Fromer said: “The LINC team is thrilled to be awarded the USAID/Mexico Monitoring and Evaluation Support for Adaptation Activity. This award allows us to continue our partnership with USAID/Mexico, which first began with the Local Capacity Development Activity in 2015.” He added: “MESA is the third large MEL activity awarded to LINC within the last few months. We know how critical MEL, CLA, and overall local capacity strengthening are for achieving USAID’s mission. As such, we take these awards with the utmost commitment and responsibility”.
LINC’s partner for MESA is women-led, locally-based Sistemas de Inteligencia en Mercados y Opinión (SIMO).
