We work to improve the way M&E is done. We help strengthen the ability to plan, report on what is being achieved and assess results. This is known as evaluation capacity development. We work with policy makers, parliamentarians, academia and M&E networks and practitioners. CLEAR-AA is one of six regional centres housed in academic institutions across the globe. The other CLEAR centers are in Senegal, Mexico, India, China and Brazil, and we are supported by the CLEAR global Initiative in Washington, DC.
