Strategy

  • Contribute to the further strategic and programmatic development of DRC’s Economic Recovery portfolio in EAGL region, across DRC’s Response Framework and its three programmatic platforms (Responding to Emergency; Solutions to Displacement; Addressing Root Causes).

    • Monitoring and evaluation: support outcome monitoring to measure programme quality, and evaluate impact, cost-effectiveness and relevance.
    • Participation and accountability: support DRC operations to increase the participation of and their accountability to populations of concern.
    • MSA preparedness: support organisational preparedness for market systems programming (including CVA and uptake of digital payments in country operations).
