How We Measure Progress

Feed the Future has a rigorous system by which we monitor, evaluate and learn from our work. Our U.S. Government partners report results from their programs as part of this system.

We analyze the data sources outlined below that make up this system, which helps us continuously learn from and improve our efforts. To make this level of monitoring, evaluation and learning more sustainable over time, we also help countries strengthen their own national data systems.

The Feed the Future monitoring, evaluation and learning system also includes:

  • A results framework that outlines how we expect our efforts will lead to our goal of sustainably reducing global hunger, malnutrition, and poverty.
  • Standard and custom indicators that track progress and help us monitor performance.
  • Evaluations that help us better understand how effective our various efforts have been and why.
  • A learning agenda that identifies gaps in evidence that we aim to fill so we can further improve our work in the future.

We recently upgraded this system to align with the U.S. Government Global Food Security Strategy. While we begin using this upgraded system, Feed the Future will also continue to track progress against poverty and hunger in our original 19 Feed the Future focus countries through 2019 to complete reporting on the initiative’s first phase.
