Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Policy

This is a policy that penned for The Salvation Army Netherlands to set quality norms and standards to how their interventions are monitored and evaluated globally.

 

The standards include (but not limited to);

-adherence to internationally agreed upon principles, goals and targets of development,

-application of the OECD/DAC criteria for evaluations

-the formation of an internal reference group for evaluations

-setting up of a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) system

Research

This is a published journal article that  was  authored on the plights of women working under inhumane and 'slave-like' factory conditions.The major findings were that the business practices were not in line with the provisions of International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the UN Convention for the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).  Recommendations of the study were for the national government to have more gender focused policies, changes to the law to protect the rights of women and gender mainstreaming.

UN Evaluation

Facilitation of  the 2009 Evaluation of the programmatic activities under United Nations Development (UNDAF) Work Plan. The UNDAF is the Work Plan/Country Strategy Paper that the nine (9) UN agencies in the greater Caribbean should gear their development work over five years.My role in the evaluation was being part of the data collection process, reviewing the Evaluation report and identifying strategies to integrate the findings in the programming processes.

Advocacy and Policy Influencing

Academic research showed that there were poor and uneducated women workers (some pregnant), who were made to endure more than 8 hours on their feet. This was often with little or no food in poorly ventilated areas with limited sanitary facilities.Furthermore, they were paid way below the minimum wage and were subject to sexual harassment and intimidation on the job.After publication of the study failed to garner the sufficient response from the national government , they was a partnering with Women's Organisations and the media to push for change.As a result of these lobby efforts, there were policy changes and amendments made to the Factories Act in Jamaica. The government also does more monitoring visits of the factories.
