  3. TAQEEM Fund for youth employment evaluation (Phase I & II) - A partnership to promote results-based monitoring and evaluation for youth employment in the MENA region: Public-Private Partnership

    06 October 2015

    Taqeem (meaning “evaluation” in Arabic) has been implemented in two phases. The first phase worked with 15 youth employment organizations and initiatives reaching approximately 15,000 young people a year as part of a competitively selected Community of Practice (CoP) to improve their capacity to measure and monitor the impact of their programmes. This was achieved firstly through “Evaluation Clinics” which taught CoP members the key steps for impact evaluation and equipped them with enhanced, low-cost, high-impact monitoring and evaluation tools and small grants. The development of a web-based knowledge sharing platform and dissemination campaigns supported the reporting of successes and challenges to stakeholders and raised project profiles. Finally, organizations with positive results developed and conducted randomized control trail studies to show the impact of their programmes.
