PEP continues to expand in terms of institutional networking and sources of funding, with a growing list of donors including AusAID, CIDA, DFID (or UK Aid), IADB, IDRC, IFPRI, ILO, UNDP, UNICEF, UN Women.
Since 2010, PEP has developed a highly sophifisticated and effective "Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) System", which allows it to continually assess the progress, outcomes and impact of PEP research and support activities worldwide.
PEP M&E data allows to report on these achievements, not only in the form of detailed statistics - encompassing results from all or specific groups of PEP-supported projects - but also in the form of qualitative "impact stories", showing the manifold impact and ramifications of individual PEP projects in beneficiary countries.
The following reports - focused on the statistical results from PEP M&E surveys since 2010 - were published up to 2015, but since then PEP M&E data has continued to be reported biannually in relation to specific programs, such as PAGE.
