The Taqeem Fund: Results-based monitoring and evaluation for youth employment in the MENA region: Public-Private Partnership
To support youth employment initiatives and improving the effectiveness of their programs, the ILO initiated work on results-based monitoring and evaluation. This new public-private partnership (PPP) supports a select group of small and medium-sized youth employment organizations from the Middle East and North Africa region to develop strategies and provide evidence of their impact, through cost-effective and mass-market technology-based tools. The results are promoted to a broader community of policymakers, practitioners and funders. The Taqeem (wich means “evaluation” in Arabic) Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of fifteen youth employment organizations pioneering new approaches to build capacity in the MENA region to measure and monitor the impact of national programmes.
