DM&E Tip: Qualities of 'Good' and 'Evaluable' Theories of Change

Posted on May 24, 2012 at 10:28am 0 Comments

There is an emerging discussion in international development on theories of change. On the one hand you have methodological discussions and debates in theory-based evaluation on the testability and evaluability of theories of change, and on the other an emphasis on program design and the role and qualities of a good theory of change. This DM&E Tip attempts to capture the key points of the discussions on both sides (perhaps duality is a simplification, but it will suffice for this…

DM&E Tip: Gender Sensitive Project Design

Posted on May 10, 2012 at 11:15am 0 Comments

Cross-posted from the Learning Portal for DM&E for Peacebuilding

We know that conflict and violence affects all people, but not in the same way.  Men and women can be perpetrators and victims; but, often they play different roles and have different needs before, during and after a conflict. 

The differences in gender roles and responsibilities means that in order to be effective we have to target certain activities…

The Arc

 The arc A Formal Structure for a Palestinian State produced by the Rand Corporation. It is a giant leap in the right direction into finding a peaceful solution in the Palestinian-Israeli crisis. It is a ten year plan to develop the West Bank one day connecting it to Gaza. It addresses many of the problems the people of Palestine face in forming a viable state. Only with a prospers Palestinian society that resembles the society of the State of Israel will the people of both societies have any real security. 

They spent more than 3 million dollars and four years in the development of this plan. It is a thirty-three billion dollar plan over ten years that addresses the Palestinian issues of transportation, housing, education, commerce, justice and the contiguity of the State of Palestine. It is a very comprehensive plan creating a clear image of a much better way of life for the Palestinian people. Restoring their dignity and hope for a better future for their children is the best first steps towards peace.

This is the link to an 8 minute and 35 minute video outlining the Arc.The Arc: A Formal Structure For a Palestinian State | RAND 

http://www.rand.org/multimedia/video/2008/08/26/the_arc.html 

Here is a link to the Rand Corporation’s web page to the Arc Reach Brief. There is a link to the full outline version of the Arc at the bottom of the page.

The Arc: A Formal Structure for a Palestinian State | RAND  http://www.rand.org/pubs/research_briefs/RB9119/index1.html

These are two links of Doug Sulsman presentation of the Arc at the J Street YMCA New York, NY.

There is no way to peace, peace is the way. The Arc is the way for long term peace to become a reality in the Palestinian/Israeli crisis. The challenges are to make the Arc a reality that more people can see, as well as working out the full implementation of the Arc’s plan. The earlier more people get behind a plan like the Arc the sooner it could become a reality. Everyone should write to their elected representatives letting them know about the Arc and your support of the plan. Who could not support such a plan of a way to peace as the arc.
