Event Description

Evaluating Peacebuilding and Promoting Learning

A Special Session of the Conflict Prevention and Resolution Forum
Followed By: Learning for Peacebuilding Workshop

Organized by Catholic Relief Services and
Search for Common Ground
With the Conflict Management Program Johns Hopkins SAIS

Forum Details:
The peacebuilding community often struggles with measuring program effectiveness and how to promote learning from our work. How can we best capture and document the results of peacebuilding programs? How do we balance external reporting requirements with internal learning needs? How can we best promote learning within our organizations and across the wider peacebuilding community? How do we strengthen our capacities to undertake more effective Design, Monitoring and Evaluation and promote consistent, reflective practice?
In this special session of the Conflict Prevention and Resolution Forum, we will take stock of efforts to undertake more effective evaluation and promote more systematic learning. We will reflect on growing donor demands for quantifiable results, often within short periods of time. We will also reflect on the feasibility and relevance of certain methodologies such as impact evaluations that use randomized control groups and utilization-focused or developmental evaluations.
You may register to participate in the morning's forum or in the entire day's activities.

Thank you Philip. I will keep a tab on the podcast, and check back in 10 days. Evaluation of intervention is really a field that we are intently working on. Simply because we feel that it is about time to evaluate what we have done so far.

Maraming salamat. That is Thank You, as we say in Filipino.

There is no live broadcast of the event 'Evaluating Peacebuilding and Promoting Learning'. However, a podcast of the two first panels will be made available about 10 days after the event (www.sfcg.org). Philipp
