War Child Canada and WRC (Women’s Refugee Commission) are collaborating to create a user-friendly toolkit detailing M&E practices that I/NGOs and CSOs can use for GBV projects in restrictive environments. The idea behind the toolkit is that it can serve as a user manual to guide partner organizations working on GBV projects for how to apply best practices for their M&E activities including indicator development, remote management, mobile data collection, and community feedback mechanisms. We’re building the toolkit based on the experiences of CSOs and I/NGOs and donors in South Sudan and Afghanistan as well as global best practices, and building in knowledge from existing resources.
If you’re interested in participating in an interview with us to discuss your experience and the experience of your organization/group, please contact me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org). And please feel free to share this message out to your networks.
Finally, if you have any resource or tools that you use or find useful, please feel free to share those. We’ve done a scan of the available resources, but are interested in hearing from you about which tools and guides are actually most relevant for your work. Our goal is to build the toolkit based on the experience and best practice of practitioners, but in order to do that we need your insights!
If you have any questions or would like to chat more, please let me know and I’ll be happy to discuss.
Are you still looking for people to interview? In case I can help in circulating.
Yes, we're still looking for people to participate. It would be great if you could distribute, thanks!
I am happy to speak to you sometime next week to talk about GBV bringing sexuality as an interface to it as well as intersectionality perspective. It would be good to know bit more about the objective of this evaluation.
Thanks so much for reaching out! We aren't doing an evaluation for this project. Instead, the proejct is to create a toolkit/manual which details monitoring and evaluation practices that are used for GBV projects in restrictive environments. The toolkit will be an easy-to-use resource for CSOs/NNGOs/INGOs working on GBV programming in these types of environments. Does that help clarify our project?
There are a number of development organizations and partners that have developed guidance and toolkits related to M&E practices for GBV-related interventions.Some examples of these (with links to the relevant documents)are provided below:
1. USAID has developed a Toolkit for Monitoring and Evaluating Gender-Based Violence Interventions along the Relief to Development Continuum. Accessible via this link: https://www.usaid.gov/sites/default/files/documents/1865/Section%20...
2. CARE International has Guidance for Gender Based Violence (GBV) Monitoring and Mitigation within Non-GBV Focused Sectoral Programming. Accessible via this link: https://www.care.org/sites/default/files/documents/CARE%20GBV%20M%2...
3. UNDP's Guidance Note "Gender-Based Violence in Crisis and Post-Crisis settings" contains a specific section 7 on Monitoring and Evaluations. Accessibel via this link: http://www.undp.org/content/dam/undp/library/gender/Gender%20and%20...
4. DFID has developed a Guidance on Monitoring and Evaluation for Programming on Violence against Women and Girls. Accessible via this link: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/...
Thanks so much for the examples Serdar!
We've been doing a bit of a lit review here to determine what resources are out there and these are great additions!
Thanks Madhumita and Serdar for your responses.
