The Fund for Evaluation in Employment is an initiative of the International Labour Organization (ILO) aimed at improving the effectiveness of employment and enterprise development interventions in the Middle East and North Africa. Through this call for proposals in 2015, the Fund offers technical assistance and seed funding to project implementers and researchers for impact evaluations and results-based monitoring and evaluation systems. A particular focus lies on generating evidence on labour market outcomes for young people and women. The Fund is supported by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie), Silatech and the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).
Eligible organizations include research institutions, NGOs, multilateral institutions and governments either implementing labour market and enterprise programmes or conducting research in the Middle East or North Africa.
What is the support to shortlisted projects?
The Fund delivers two types of support: technical assistance and funding. The technical assistance is delivered through training, expert advice and small cash grants and is mainly directed at practitioners for the establishment and implementation of results-based monitoring and evaluation systems, as well as in some cases for the design of impact evaluations.
Seed funding of up to US$650,000 is available for the implementation of 3-5 impact evaluations that should be conducted by or in partnership with researchers. According to the stage of the proposal, both support types can be provided, building on each other in a complementary manner.
