Strategic support to the Panos Relay Programme

Itad undertook an appreciative evaluation of the Panos Relay Programme. The assignment involved country visits to Zambia, Malawi, Uganda, Kenya, and India.


Funded under the DFID Research Uptake Team portfolio of knowledge service programmes, Panos Relay aims to strengthen and promote the approaches to building the capacity of media to report on research. In addition to the evaluation, we were requested to facilitate the development of Relay’s Theory of Change (ToC); help Panos test and refine their approach to action research; and design, build and train the team in monitoring, evaluation and learning.

The assignment involved country field visits to Zambia, Malawi, Uganda, Kenya, and India.  Key features of the assignment included our design of an appreciative evaluation approach based on USAID’s After Action Review, and conducting a series of M&E training workshops for Relay programme field office staff to build their capacity in M&E and to adapt the Relay ToC to local contexts.
