Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP), MENA Region


CaLP has been operating its Middle East and North Africa Office in Amman, Jordan since 2017. In 2018, CaLP received funding from the German Federal Foreign Office (GFFO) to support further expansion of regional presence that would facilitate more intensive engagement on capacity building, research and knowledge management, coordination support, and policy and advocacy objectives. Meraki Labs was commissioned to complete a final evaluation of the CaLP's overall contribution to building an enabling environment for CVA programming in the region and more broadly. The evaluation assessed past project objectives, not only in light of the MENA context and project aims, but also rapid shifts in context. In order to best serve CaLP's agenda, the evaluation was focused on assessing approach as compared to the new global strategic plan for the 2020-2025 period.
