Bond Effectiveness Learning Series

Bond

Michael O'Donnell

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Bond established an Effectiveness programme in 2009, aimed particularly at helping INGOs to improve how they monitor, evaluate and learn from their activities. Ultimately, the theory is that better MEL should lead to activities that are more effective in contributing to development outcomes.

Over the last six years – and particularly following strong investment in learning in the period since 2013 – the Effectiveness programme itself has adapted and broadened in scope, supporting over 400 NGOs since 2013 alone. This set of learning briefs aims to capture some key lessons learned from Bond’s experience which can be useful for others wishing to promote NGO effectiveness. 

There are three papers in the series:

Effectiveness Services: Types and Value 

8 Tips for Designing Effectiveness Services that Work

Senior Leadership Roles in Promoting NGO Effectiveness
