Bolstering Reconstruction in Iraq through Growth, Development, and Employment (BRIDGE) – Global Affairs Canada
CLIC is jointly implementing with the Canadian NGO World University Service Canada (WUSC) this five-year development project (2017-2022), on behalf of the Government of Canada (Global Affairs Canada). This project aims to contribute to the reform of the TVET sector in Iraq and to provide construction and health care related vocational training to up to 3,000 young men and women including ex-combatants in several regions of Iraq. With the support of the Ottawa-based Monitoring and Evaluation advisors, technical assistance is provided to the field-based team to establish a standardized M&E framework and tools (qualitative and quantitative) to regularly monitor project performance and to evaluate outcomes. This rigorous M&E framework and tools will inform the project about its progress, any deviation from targets, and will identify any gaps or challenges to be mitigated to ensure project success. In addition, the M&E framework will be regularly reviewed and revised to ensure it meets the needs of the environment in which it is being implemented. In fluid contexts, such as Iraq, it is crucial to ensure the M&E framework evolves with the changing needs (if any) to meet the realities on the ground and project impact.
