Salanga has been working with its partners to develop and pilot a community-led approach to MEAL. Salanga defines Community-Led Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (CoLMEAL) as an approach to MEAL that capacitates key community members/change agents to continually monitor, analyze, share, and reflect on progress against their community development plans based on outcomes and indicators they have defined.
It is a strategy to deepen community ownership and control over outcomes and increase sustainability of outcomes. CoLMEAL is a step within the community-led development programming cycle that includes community-led situation analysis and community-led design.
In 2022, Salanga will launch a series of webinars on CoLMEAL, those interested in registering can sign up for updates here: pages.salanga.org/colmeal-news-updates
