Final Independent Evaluation of the Process of Integration of ACF Kenya's ECHO funded programme in North Eastern Province, Kenya
About this resource
Action Against Hunger Kenya (ACH) has been working in Kenya’s North Eastern Province (NEP) since 2002. They are currently implementing an integrated multi-sectoral project which seeks to address issues of vulnerability and risk to mortality due to malnutrition. This integrated approach as articulated in ACF's country strategy was developed to address chronic underlying causes of vulnerability, provide curative services and engage beneficiaries to make healthy changes.
The evaluation was primarily intended to support learning in the project. The evaluation has highlighted six lessons on integration learned in this initial phase of the project. Those lessons are to: 1. define integration as both an internal and social process 2. align internal processes to integrated objectives 3. integrate project and community targeting systems 4. integrate the project into community monitoring systems through commonly understood & agreed indicators 5. incorporate long-term processes of integration within one-year project cycles 6. use coordination opportunities to integrate internal project processes within the wider context.
