The Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning Hub (MEAL Hub) aims to provide structure and support for learning exchange on MEAL with and for local faith actors. Specifically, the aim of the group will be to consider MEAL between international actors and local faith actors, taking into account existing issues, and aiming to compile good practice examples to be of use to a broad humanitarian and development audience.
Members of the MEAL Hub have decades of experience working on M&E with and for local faith actors. Collectively, the experience of the Hub demonstrates the opportunities and potential pitfalls of working through partnerships with local faith actors on M&E.
We hope that members will be seekers and gatherers of knowledge to spur each other on towards informing and improving policy and practice between faith groups, humanitarian, and development communities.
