M&E Thursday Talk – Understanding the Effectiveness of Conflict Sensitivity Programming
This is a recording of the M&E Thursday Talk on Thursday, January 25th 2018 on “Understanding the Effectiveness of Conflict Sensitivity Programming.” This webinar was hosted by Dilshan Annaraj & Maya Assef-Horstmeier of World Vision, and Michelle Garred of CDA Collaborative Learning Projects.
Building on the publication of the new “Conflict Sensitivity Meta-Trends Analysis,” World Vision’s Associate Director for Peacebuilding Programming, Dilshan Annaraj, and Associate Director for Conflict Sensitivity, Maya Assaf-Horstmeier, will openly discuss World Vision’s concerns about the effectiveness of their conflict sensitivity programming, and how it took on an organization-wide effort, with CDA Collaborative learning, to evaluate and improve its practice.
It is never easy to concede publicly that your own organization’s practices are not as conflict-sensitive as they should be. Nevertheless, Dilshan and Maya argue that this organization-wide research process and its impacts are proving to be a helpful learning experience for World Vision, and that their programming will be better for it.
