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.

INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MIGRATION, YEMEN

Three organizations work on mixed migration in Yemen, and they work in the form of a consortium. However, information collection systems were fragmented and data was not systematically analysed.

Meraki Labs supported the consortium members to develop and roll out one consistent database. Meraki also provided monthly analysis of the data, semi-annual trend analysis and periodic thematic reports on aspects such as gender and smugglers.

MIXED MIGRATION CENTRE, ETHIOPIA

The Ethiopia Migration Programme (EMP) is a GBP 21 million programme, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DfID), aiming to enhance the protective environment for migrants and would-be migrants whilst reducing unsafe irregular migration through and from Ethiopia.

Meraki Labs designed and produced a mixed-methods protection analysis to determine the protection risks faced by migrants, would-be migrants, as well as camp and out-of-camp Somali and Eritrean refugees in Ethiopia considering onward movement. Meraki Labs provided programming recommendations aiming to strengthen the protective element of migration programming, focusing on harm reduction and integration services for returnees.

The Ethiopia Migration Programme (EMP) is a GBP 21 million programme, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DfID), aiming to enhance the protective environment for migrants and would-be migrants whilst reducing unsafe irregular migration through and from Ethiopia.

Meraki Labs worked with the consortium to analyse the strengths and weaknesses in the Theory of Change and propose revisions and refinements which could increase the impact of the programming.
