Rapidly-Deployed Solutions for Every Context.

Proximity's Services

Proximity International delivers monitoring, evaluation, research, and learning-centered program implementation.

Our solutions can be rapidly deployed and customized to meet the needs of clients working in even the most insecure and hard-to-reach environments.   

Monitoring

 

We specialize in monitoring multi-sectoral and multi-year programs in hard-to-reach and complex areas. Our trained field teams collect accurate data used to verify and assess project implementation and related conditions. Monitoring activities generate a wealth of information from the field – some of it with the potential to support a program long before a final report is due. Proximity provides clients with data in real -time through mobile data collection and cloud-based information management.

Learning-Centered Implementation

 

We leverage our innovative research methods to implement effectively in the world’s most challenging environments. Through our Doing-by-Learning approach, we go beyond agile management. We incorporate ongoing learning through feedback loops to continually update and iterate our theories of change based on the most recent data. Designed to support innovation amidst complex systems, our approach connects MERL directly to implementation. It thereby fosters responsive solutions across a range of services, including capacity building, grant management, and stakeholder engagement.
