Adapt

Purpose
  1. Ensure that strategies and workplans adapt based on results of monitoring and evaluation, unintended consequences, new opportunities, and other changes in conditions.
  2. Share lessons learned via relevant pathways.
Products
  • Affirmation or revision of workplan and theory of change
