The PEC Data Visualizations Series

DME for Peace

Created 03/29/2019



Data Visualization

With support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, through the Peacebuilding Evaluation Consortium, the DME for Peace team has worked to turn some of the most accessed resources on the site’s resource library into data visualizations and graphic summaries. This project is part of the platform’s wider effort to improve the way that evaluators, and the peacebuilding field, communicate results. During this project, the DME for Peace team worked with a number of different platforms, tested a variety of methods, on a range of reports and evaluations, to try and work out what methods tell the best story and are the easiest to use.

We understand that not every evaluation needs a data summary, and not every evaluator can be a graphic designer, so we are trying to develop some guidance that helps our field better understand the impact, and improve the dissemination and uptake of the results, of our work.
