This is the M&E Thursday Talk from Thursday, February 20th, when Shaziya DeYoung and Jessica Baumgardner-Zuzik of Alliance for Peacebuilding, led a discussion on “What does it mean to measure peace? Ask Eirene!”
How do we measure trust in the peacebuilding field? What can we learn from organizations conducting programming and evaluations in specific conflicts? These are just a couple of questions you can find the answers to in the Eirene Peacebuilding Database. The Eirene Peacebuilding Database is a comprehensive collection of 3,381 indicators from 2,008 publicly available peacebuilding resources. The database includes programmatic approaches, indicators, and measures that are currently being used in the peacebuilding field.
The Eirene Peacebuilding Database is the culmination of nearly two years of work to search, catalogue, curate, and share key peacebuilding indicators that will help better assess and measure impact across seven defined program areas. In this webinar, Shaziya and Jessica explained how and why Eirene came about, and provided an interactive demonstration, so that participants know how to use the database, what types of content it contains, and different ways to interact with it.
