Workshop on Evaluating Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding: What have we learned?

 

 

A meeting on "Evaluating Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding: What have we learned?" was hosted by Norway 16-17 February 2011. This joint workshop was attended by some 65 participants from the DAC Network on Development Evaluation (EVALNET) and the International Network on Conflict and Fragility (INCAF), together with other policy experts and evaluators, and took stock of lessons from the testing phase.

 

The draft guidance was used to evaluate conflict prevention and peacebuilding programmes in a number of conflict-affected and fragile countries. Major joint evaluations were conducted in the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, and Sri Lanka, and the guidance was used by donors, country stakeholders and NGOs to inform various other reviews and evaluation work.

At the workshop we discussed the wealth of policy and evaluation lessons coming from these experiences and decided on the way forward for revising and updating the guidance based on these experiences. More about this work
