Africa Lead Progress & Impact

By design, Africa Lead activities are demand-driven, and the project is seen as a flexible mechanism to provide support to various USAID initiatives at the mission and Continental level in support of agricultural transformation as called for by CAADP. In order to appreciate the whole of Africa Lead’s impact, individual activities must be viewed within the larger context of the continental-wide goals which drive them. In this way, we believe Africa Lead as a project is truly greater than the sum of its parts.

Monitoring & Evaluation

The complex and dynamic environments in which Africa Lead operates demand a flexible and adaptive Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) system that responds to both the accountability requirements and knowledge and learning needs of the Program. Towards this end, the Program will use both quantitative and qualitative methods to assess the contribution of our interventions to changes in behavior, attitudes, norms and performance of individuals, groups, and organizations, but also the overarching objective of African agricultural transformation.
