Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning

Blue Earth Consultants’ clients are focused on creating environmental and social benefits under complex and changing circumstances. Our team designs and implements projects to help our clients reflect on progress and consider lessons learned in order to foster continuous improvement in their program and project investments. Blue Earth Consultants helps clients realign goals and strategies, increase accountability and transparency, and improve effectiveness employing four techniques: performance measurement, monitoring, evaluation, and adaptive management.

  • Performance measurement to observe results and assess progress toward achieving project or program objectives.
  • Monitoring to systematically identify indicators of progress and collect information that assists in evaluating how well a project or program is achieving its outcomes and goals.
  • Evaluation that uses monitoring information and other data to draw conclusions about program progress, generate key findings and lessons learned, and identify actions to improve project effectiveness.
  • Adaptive management to implement identified areas of improvement, and provide a new baseline by which to compare future performance measurement.

Blue Earth Consultants has extensive expertise developing monitoring, evaluation, and learning frameworks and tools, conducting granting due diligence, identifying effective measurement criteria, and performing program evaluations at small to large-regional scales. We are adept at identifying opportunities for enhancing success and making recommendations for more efficiently and effectively achieving program goals. We have direct experience performing these services for private foundations, non-government organizations, government agencies, inter-governmental organizations, and academic institutions in the U.S. West Coast, Southeast Asia, the Pacific, Mexico, and the Mesoamerican Reef/Wider Caribbean.
