Agence française de développement (AFD) Monitoring-evaluation and continuous transversal capitalization of projects financed by “FISONG 2020 One Health”

The Innovation Facility for NGOs (FISONG) is a co-financing tool mobilized by calls for proposals for the benefit of NGOs. Its criterion is innovation and aims to explore new ways of doing things. Noting the low representation of NGOs in supporting the “One Health” approach, AFD has chosen, for 2020, to use this tool to explore and deepen, with them, this approach. Two projects, led respectively by GRET and the AVSF-Solthis consortium, were selected following the call for proposals issued in April 2020. Each of the projects is due to start in the first quarter of 2021 for a period of three years.

This mission therefore aims to support each of the two project leaders in:

  • The finalization of the preparation of the project (and in particular in the clarification of its innovative character with regard to the characteristics of the “One Health” approach) and the establishment of a project monitoring and evaluation system;
  • Reflexivity on the project with a view to using the lessons beyond the time of the project;

The mission also aims to support AFD in:

  • The establishment of a global FISONG monitoring and evaluation system integrating sectoral indicators and accountability frameworks specific to AFD in order to measure FISONG’s results;
  • The transversal capitalization of FISONG and non-FISONG projects in order to reveal AFD’s experiences in terms of operationalizing the “One Health” approach.
