The objective of ResilienceMonitor is to contribute to lasting positive impact

Our approaches are systemic, flexible, participatory, multidisciplinary and learning-oriented, tailored to the global challenges

ResilienceMonitor is an international consulting firm dedicated to providing high quality, contextually informed and ethical consultancy MEL services. Working with partners around the world, ResilienceMonitor is committed to achieving the greatest impact in supporting timely, meaningful, robust, and actionable information in support of transformative climate resilient development.

International development funders, financial institutions and programme implementors recognise that M&E is to key to achieving the 2030 development goals at scale. The growing impacts of climate change add urgency to the entire agenda and make solutions more complex. More than ever, the M&E community is called upon to provide knowledge and information in a timely and useful manner.

Addressing the scale and complexities of climate change require innovative approaches to ‘traditional’ M&E systems. Through our work, we aim to transform M&E practice. We do this by making M&E processes and tools useful for our partners, helping them to generate evidence and learning, track progress of their investments and make the best decisions in the face of complexity and uncertainty.

Our vision is a more equitable and climate resilient world, where people everywhere can live their lives free from poverty, violence and injustice
Along with our values, our vision articulates who we are and what we believe, and guide our actions
We are trusted partners and through all of our work we keep learning and bringing new experience back to our next project. We work with a global network of interdisciplinary consultants to deliver services of the very highest standard
