Due to the devastating impacts of landslides
worldwide, various mitigation projects such as
establishment of community-based early warning
systems are being initiated. Monitoring, evaluation,
accountability and learning (MEAL) is integral in
ensuring the success of these projects to achieve their
goals. Despite the increase in projects and funding for
disaster risk reduction, there are insufficient research in
understanding the effectiveness of MEAL systems for
disaster risk reduction projects, particularly for early
warning system for landslides (EWS-L). This study
aims to develop a framework for MEAL for EWS-L
through a systematic review of the available literature.
The issues and recommendations derived from the
systematic review were adopted to craft the guiding
principles of the framework with the project goals and
objectives. This framework provides a novel approach
by providing guidelines on planning, designing and
implementing MEAL not only for early warning system
projects but also in disaster management and
development projects in general.
