Summer 2020: Innovation and M&E during COVID-19

Innovation and M&E during COVID-19

COVID-19 has proven that business as usual can’t continue and the international development community must adapt. Conversations about the “new normal” and 21st-century development are taking place. This means rethinking key aspects of our business, including how we award funds and measure impact. In addition, it means keeping diversity and inclusion at the forefront of the innovation process.

COVID-19 is a mega disruptor that can change things for the better. But doing so requires some radical rethinking.
