This webinar will present the key drivers for adapting approaches and tools to monitor and evaluate the outcomes of peacebuilding initiatives in complex conflict settings. Join Ian and Isaac as they share their experience with moving to an outcome-harvesting approach to monitoring and evaluating the impacts of the five-year USAID Supporting Access to Justice, Fostering Equity and Peace (SAFE) program (2012-2017). Outcome-harvesting is a participatory tool used to identify changes and the role of the project’s activities in influencing those changes. Admission is $25 (USD), Register Here.
The SAFE Program seeks to strengthen peacebuilding and conflict mitigation by improving access to justice in land matters in 20 target districts, and enhancing peace and reconciliation, in conflict-prone regions of Uganda. SAFE has assisted with the establishment of traditional/community-based dispute resolution mechanisms to mitigate conflict while considering the cross-cutting themes of: youth, gender, population, anti-corruption and oil production. SAFE monitors conflict situations across Uganda and has supported a range of peacebuilding and conflict mitigation activities—including: in areas affected by the Lord’s Resistance Army conflict in northern Uganda, the crises caused by the massive influx of South Sudanese refugees into Uganda, and the complex ethnic and political battles in the Rwenzori region of Uganda bordering Congo.
