Monitoring and Learning System for the EUTF Horn of Africa

The overall objective of the programme is to use an evidence-based approach for programming and implementing interventions in the Horn of Africa region, as well as to inform policy around the themes of the EUTF in the region.

In May 2018, a top-up of €2 million was approved to further enhance the Monitoring and Learning System for the EUTF Horn of Africa.

This was followed by a second top-up of €2.9 million in March 2021, with the aim of extending the functioning of the programme until December 2024.

Main objectives

Specific Objective 1: to establish and implement a Monitoring and Learning System which monitors and reports on the overall progress of the EUTF Horn of Africa window against EUTF strategic objectives, Horn of Africa policy priorities and EUTF principles of interventions.
Specific Objective 2: to develop and implement a learning strategy based on detailed investigations into how and why individual projects or groups of projects are performing or not, and whether and how they confirm the theories of change underpinning the EUTF approach, in order to improve their delivery and also the design of future projects.
Specific Objective 3: to design and pilot8 a system of macro-level indicators of movement, vulnerability, stability and crises management capacity at the national and regional level against which to realistically frame the EUTF (and other similar EU) interventions; inform future EU programming and policy making; and ultimately track the joint impact of the EUTF HoA projects at the regional level through a top-down approach.
