Final Evaluation of the Mediterranean Mixed Migration (3M) Response Programme

3M CONSORTIUM (DRC, IRC, START NETWORK)

LIBYA, NIGER, MALI, TUNISIA, BURKINA FASO

3M was a three-year FCDO-funded migration response programme led by a consortium of the Danish Refugee Council (DRC), International Rescue Committee (IRC), the Start Network and the Mixed Migration Center (North and West Africa). The programme was operational in Mali, Niger, Libya, Tunisia, and Burkina Faso – with additional reach provided by Migration Emergency Response Facility (MERF) grants provided by the Start Network.

Meraki Labs was commissioned to complete a final evaluation of the programme, with the overall objective of this assignment is to support the 3M migration program to assess to what extent the project has contributed to its overall objective and achieved its results, and to evaluate if the project’s approach (design and implementation) was the right strategy. Meraki Labs used a traditional OECD DAC evaluation approach, combined with an in-depth theory of change review, value for money assessment, and modified the effectiveness assessment to correspond with a routes-based approach framework.

CASH LEARNING PARTNERSHIP, IRAQ

In Iraq, state social protection programmes are a critical component of household income. For the last seven years, communities have also benefited from ongoing humanitarian cash-based support to meet emergency needs. As the humanitarian response to the ISIL crisis winds down, several initiatives for linking humanitarian and social protection systems have been initiated, but none have been sustained or gained sufficient buy in from all stakeholders. The Covid-19 crisis has added a layer of urgency in finding a solution to poverty-focused cash-based social protection initiatives in Iraq.

Meraki Labs supported humanitarian, development, and government actors in understanding the extent to which humanitarian cash assistance and government-led social protection programmes overlap in Iraq, to determine a way forward to support vulnerable households in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, while considering the importance of ongoing recovery from conflict.
