M&E Thursday Talk – A Guide to Countering Violent Extremism at the Local Level

This is the M&E Thursday Talk from October 15th, 2020, when Theo DolanTechnical Advisor at FHI 360, led a discussion on “A Guide to Countering Violent Extremism at the Local Level“.

FHI 360 recently launched their online CVE Reference Guide for Local Organizations, which supports civil society organizations (CSOs) to prevent and counter violent extremism by synthesizing and sharing the most relevant material related to the Preventing/Countering Violent Extremism (P/CVE) project cycle —Assess, Design, Implement, Monitor & Evaluate, and Learn.

This interactive guide was developed through dozens of CSO consultations and more than a decade of implementation experience. After numerous conversations, CSOs indicated a need for more guidance on M&E as applied to P/CVE. In this webinar discussion, Theo gave participants an in-depth look at the guide and how it can be adjusted to meet specific needs, focusing on the guide’s M&E module.

The presentation was followed by a feedback session and Q&A. Participants were invited to review the guide and provide targeted feedback. This information will be used by FHI 360 to further advance the guide to fit practitioners’ needs.

This presentation is compeling in terms of information, methods, tools and resources shown and explained. Especially resources given are comprehensive. I was just wondering why there are no translations envisioned in Spanish, Central Europe and some Asian languages.

As we all know, violent extremism is not limited to Sub Saharan Africa, MENA regions, but is also in display in Central, South America, Asia an Central, Eastern Europe.
A further remark is about how flexible, adaptable are the modules contents to local contexts wherever they have to be used?
Last question, can Results-Based Management (RBM) framework, with its methodologies, tools and practices be applied to this?

Thank you very much
