USAID/Liberia contracted Tetra Tech as the Prime Contractor to implement the five-year, $15.5 million Land Governance Support Activity (LGSA) Task Order (TO) under the Strengthening Tenure and Resource Rights (STARR) Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC). LGSA supports the establishment of more effective land governance systems, ready to implement comprehensive reforms to improve equitable access to land and security of tenure, so as to facilitate inclusive sustained growth and development, ensure peace and security, and provide sustainable management of the environment.
LGSA objectives support USAID/Liberia’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) and the LGSA Theory of Change. Tetra Tech provides technical and organizational assistance to the Government of Liberia (GOL), civil society, and communities to achieve the four project objectives:
- Objective 1 (O1): Policy, legal and regulatory framework for land governance strengthened
- Objective 2 (O2): Functionality of GOL land governance institutions improved
- Objective 3 (O3): Protection of customary land rights strengthened
- Objective 4 (O4): Stakeholder engagement in land governance strengthened
The purpose of this Monitoring and Evaluation Plan (MEP) is to describe how Tetra Tech will monitor and evaluate the LGSA and ultimately measure activity results. This MEP proposes indicators against each of the activity objectives, and describes the processes that LGSA will use to perform monitoring and evaluation (M&E) throughout the life of the activity. Furthermore, the LGSA MEP serves as a guide for learning, accountability and reporting procedures, and outlines responsible persons, timelines and data sources of the project during the five-year activity life span. Each indicator has a Performance Indicator Reference Sheet (PIRS), wherein details of the indicator are outlined. There is also a Performance Indicator Table, see section 5, which includes the indicators and targets for the activity.
