Design, Monitoring and Evaluation for Programming in Fragile Environments

The aim of the Design, Monitoring and Evaluation micro-course explores foundational concepts, practices, and skills required to design, monitoring, and evaluating peacebuilding programs in fragile and conflict-affected settings. This course was developed in partnership with the Geneva Centre for Security Policy. It is now more important than ever for practitioners working in fragile and conflict affected environments to justify the relevance and effectiveness of their programs to achieve a desired social change, particularly when resources are limited. If projects are designed well at the beginning, the monitoring and evaluation tools will be more effective to gather necessary data to ensure they are on target towards the intended outcomes and impact.
