About Us

Monitoring and evaluation professionals association of Kenya (MEPAK) was started informally in January 2016 by concerned professionals having noticed that most African countries including Kenya did not achieve the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) that ended in 2015. Further analysis demonstrated that countries that had achieved some of the MDGs had effectively used data to galvanize their development efforts, implement their targeted interventions and track performance.

With the global agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030, this epistemic community recognizes that the SDG agenda is even more complex. The SDGs do not only include continuation of MDGs but integration of other goals including sustainability and social inclusion. Therefore the governments, programmes and projects have a more complex set of turbulences and business cannot be done as usual and expect different results. The MEPAK professionals have aggressively advocated for use of evidence for decisions and policymaking, mentored organizations and institution on ways to enhance their M&E systems and participated in events, forums and documentations to share findings and best practices nationally, regionally and internationally.

MEPAK understands that like the SDGs, its goals will be achieved through a multi stakeholder’s process. The professional body engages across the public and private sector, civil society, community-based organizations, and individuals in their own motivation, Scientists, academia, researchers, think tanks, and foundations to mention a few.

MEPAK was officially registered in 2018 by the office of the Attorney General, Department of the registrar, and vetted by the NIS as stipulated in the Societies ACT (CAP. 108) laws of Kenya.
