EU Research Contract Reference Code 036708. European Commission Sixth Framework Programme, Area “Science & Society”, Priority “Integrative approaches to risk governance.”

This summary extracts relevant findings of MIDIR research regards governance, Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) and learning.

The MIDIR Methodology uniquely combines data gathering and capacity assessment with capacity building, knowledge capture and continuous learning.

The MIDIR Methodology was originally developed through an EU funded systematic global review of best practices in risk governance. The unique multi-level “fractal” pattern-based design of the MIDIR Methodology enables a programme to harvest local and global innovations and experience for improved impact.

The MIDIR Methodology is suitable for:

  • Implementation and learning programs operating at local and global scales.
  • Risk governance for resilience of institutions, societal and economic systems.
  • Developing knowledge tools for large-scale learning and capacity building.
  • Networks of cities wishing to learn from one another’s experience in adapting, preparing for and responding to climate change.
  • Networks of government agencies collaborating to implement a National Development Plan or vision.
  • Groups of nations working together for integration, trade, development, resilience or security.
  • Global and local partners collaborating to implement Global Goals, Africa’s Agenda 2063, The Paris Agreement on Climate Change and other global and regional protocols.
