About the Event

Capvine’s “Value for Money in Programme Design and Delivery” is an online event, in association with LAMP Development. It aims to explore the FCDOs concept of value for money (VfM) and the impact it has on the design and delivery of anti-modern slavery programmes.

Join us to discuss the efficiency and effectiveness of UK aid, with input from monitoring and evaluation (M&E) practitioners, governance and policy advisers and campaigners.

  • The value of aid: Why is it important now more than ever to review the way money is being spent and assistance received in recipient countries?
  • Promoting inclusive dialogue: Why is it important to promote conversations around VfM everywhere, not just among taxpayers in donor countries?
  • Measures of success: How do we continue to measure project success (not just anti-modern slavery projects) before, during and after implementation?
  • Enabling environments: What are the things that can affect VfM? (for example recipient government, genuine interest during and post-implementation, capacity to continue, political will, etc); and
  • Beyond aid? How do we continue to ‘fight’ for effective aid. Should we be looking to promote alternative funding where possible?
