ADVANCED, BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE
Since we are over halfway through with 2021 (where did the time go?), let’s look back at what learnings and resources have been resonating the most with the DME for Peace community! It is a great time to catch up on what you might have missed.
Top M&E Thursday Talks
Our M&E Thursday Talk webinars aim to address cutting-edge practices and innovation in the field. Here are three talks from 2021 that generated a lot of interest:
On April 1st, Andrew McDonnell, of Search for Common Ground, led a discussion on “Livestock, Migration, and Conflict: Tools for Designing Interventions.”
On April 29th, Sierra Frischknecht and Lilly Crown Wilder, of USAID’s Developmental Evaluation Pilot Activity (DEPA-MERL), led a discussion on “Developmental Evaluation in the Context of DM&E.”
Top Resources & Blogs
This past June, DME for Peace partnered with the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) to highlight the launch of the 15th annual Global Peace Index, the world’s leading measure of global peacefulness. This report presents the most comprehensive data driven analysis to-date on trends in peace, its economic value, and how to develop peaceful societies. You will also find a Thursday Talk discussion with IEP and multiple supporting resources.
Outcome harvesting is an evaluation approach that allows us to retrospectively identify emergent impact. In a series of blogs and visual summaries by Search for Common Ground, we are given insight into what scenarios outcome harvesting is best suited for, how to prepare for it, and considerations for the implementation of its different steps.
During July, we partnered with Next Generation Shared Societies Theory and Practice to highlight their ongoing work with Shared Societies and explore how this concept can be used as a framework for project planning, monitoring, and developing inclusive and sustainable societies. This resource includes a Thursday Talk discussion, featured blog, and numerous resources to expand your knowledge on The Concept of Shared Societies.
