This training manual was developed by seasoned trainers with subject matter expertise in peacebuilding program design, conflict analysis, conflict sensitivity, monitoring and evaluation.

It was developed by CDA Collaborative Learning Projects (CDA) in partnership with the Peacebuilding Evaluation Consortium (PEC) and with funding from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

This training manual has seven modules:

  • Module 1: Introduction and Orientation
  • Module 2: Conflict Analysis
  • Module 3: Peacebuilding Program Design
  • Module 4: Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) Plan
  • Module 5: Baseline and Indicator Development
  • Module 6: Monitoring for Intended and Unintended Impacts and Adaptive Management
  • Module 7: Evaluation and Other Evaluative Processes

These modules are supported by a set of annexes that provide additional resources, suggested handouts, and other instructional support materials.

I have not reviewed the document, but I look forward to doing so after downloading and then provide feedback.

Just had a preliminary glance through the material. Even though it acknowledges that it is not a ‘silver bullet’ , it is comprehensive and very handy, with an easy-to-navigate layout.
