M&E Thursday Talk – Outcome Harvesting: A Solution for Evidence-Based Programming?

This is a recording of the M&E Thursday Talk from Thursday, June 21st as Ian Morrison & Isaac Galiwango of USAID’s Supporting Access to Justice, Fostering Equity and Peace Project lead a discussion on “Outcome Harvesting: A Solution for Evidence-Based Programming?

This webinar examines the Outcome Harvesting Methodology used by the USAID’s Supporting Access to Justice, Fostering Equity and Peace (SAFE) Program in Uganda. The outcome harvesting methodology enabled the program to demonstrate results and impact of interventions, and provided a framework for demonstrating and mapping outcomes over target geographic areas. The methodology was implemented in furtherance of collaborative learning and adaptation (CLA) goals set forth under the Mission’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy for integrated development. The use of Outcome Harvesting Methods is discussed in relation to the impact of peace and access to justice interventions. The USAID Uganda SAFE Program is a six-year, 14 million USD program implemented in partnership by Search for Common Ground and the National Center for State Courts (NCSC). SAFE has been working to improve access to justice and to strengthen peace building and conflict mitigation in 20 districts in Uganda.

This webinar is valuable. The challenge of mapping and harvesting outcomes in project documentation persists. Most reporting of interventions still confuse the output and outcome as well as the attribution to the project. Challenges are stark in documenting learning as the project progresses. it would be interesting to revist the partners to find out how they intergrated the methodology in their activities since. It would also be useful to highlight the footprint of this effort in areas the resources were planted. Herein, am refering to the impact felt as a result of the outcomes identified.
Has Outcomes harvesting become a prefered methodology in capturing the intended effects of the interventions?
What motivates partners in adopting the methodology in regard to the lived experiences of the project delivery?
How is the communities’ improved outlook (from Outcomes harvesting) influencing subsequent interventions adaption?
