The Department for International Development (DFID) is funding the Learning and Monitoring Programme – Somalia (LAMPS) hat will provide third-party monitoring services to a representative proportion of its Somalia portfolio and across its Country Operational Plan. LAMPS provides a crucial tool for DFID to monitor and improve its work and that of its implementing partners (IPs), provides credible data for effective decision-making and building confidences with key DFID stakeholders, and provides transparent and demonstrable lessons and user-friendly evidence from achieved and/or intended results across DFID Somalia’s portfolio.
