What is ALINe?

The Agricultural, Learning and Impacts Network (ALINe) is an initiative that provides research, advisory, and facilitation services for monitoring, evaluation and learning in the agricultural development sector.

We support partners by testing and improving Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) and learning processes used in agriculture development, with a particular focus on initiatives for poor farmers.

Why are we needed?

Despite significant resources being invested to improve the lives of poor farmers, relatively little impact has been visible. ALINe believes that improving development cooperation requires new methods of understanding performance in agricultural initiatives.

ALINe promotes people-centred measurement, learning, and evaluation (MLE) approaches that increase the effectiveness of initiatives and focus accountability towards the needs and interests expressed by poor farmers.
