Stakeholder Consultation on Indicator Challenges for Food for Peace-funded Development Food Security Activities
USAID's Office of Food for Peace (FFP) hosted a stakeholder consultation with The TOPS Program on July 6, 2017, in order to take a deeper look at FFP indicators and what challenges and opportunities they bring. This stakeholder consultation covered topics that resulted from interviews with FSN Network Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Task Force members, as well as other M&E professionals in the community. The three main topics were:
- The number of indicators
- How data are used
- Implementing partner involvement in baselines studies and final evaluation
These topics were discussed in-depth among participants both online and in-person. FFP and implementing partners were in attendance, and both gained a better understanding of the challenges that existed and ways to work together to create solutions.
