Capacity Building


The Evaluation Division serves as a resource to ECA program teams to learn from and apply M&E data to enhance our programming and better serve our stakeholders. The Division builds internal capacity for ECA program officers through formal and informal training sessions, as well as tools and templates created to guide program teams in various M&E-related tasks.

A number of the products that the Evaluation Division has created will also benefit external stakeholders and can be found below. Also included are some links to external M&E resources that the Division has found helpful in its M&E work – though note that these are for reference only and should not be construed as endorsed by the ECA Evaluation Division, the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, or the U.S. Department of State.
