Monitoring & Evaluation Manager, USAID DRC Integrated Governance Activity (IGA)
The purpose of USAID’s Integrated Governance Activity (IGA) is to create the good governance framework and local capacity that is necessary for improved delivery of key services, particularly for health, education, and economic development. USAID has recognized that for this assistance to truly forge and strengthen the social contract between citizens and the State, it much reach people at the community level, where most citizens experience government. The project must do this by not only addressing capacity issues, but also – through empowering a broadly inclusive set of nongovernmental actors to hold public officials to account for better services – by changing the incentives of officials at all levels of government to act in the best interests of citizenry.

The M&EM will maintain a strong relationship with the USAID Monitoring Evaluation and Coordination Contract (MECC) team.
