Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of the performance of DFID’s partners is central to our programming to ensure that we deliver the best possible service to people in extreme poverty.

DFID South Sudan’s M&E involves both contracted external M&E service providers, who regularly conduct independent monitoring visits to UN humanitarian agencies; and DFID staff, who monitor UN humanitarian agencies on field trips and regularly discuss performance, assess and manage risks, and track progress with UN partners.
