Child Marriage

The Tipping Point project is using a Developmental Evaluation (DE) approach to monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) which leads to innovation through a focus on documentation, reflection, and learning so that we can refine strategies at every step of the way. Many people naturally experiment, by trying out new ways of doing something, and then changing what they are doing based on feedback loops and changing needs and demands. However, traditional monitoring and evaluation systems do not usually value or support this experimentation.
