Tackling M&E at USAID
This July’s issue of InterAction’s Monday Developments focused entirely on the Value of Monitoring & Evaluation. Check out the Q&A article with Ruth Levine for some fascinating “Back from Summer” reading. The article begins on page 21.

Launch of Online Accountability Tools for Policy Research
The One World Trust created an interactive, online database of tools to help organisations conducting policy relevant research become more accountable.
