Monitoring and Evaluation
We Support the organization in the processes of planning, monitoring and evaluation make up the Result-Based Management (RBM) approach, which is intended to aid decision-making towards explicit goals (see RBM). Planning helps to focus on results that matter, while M&E facilitates learning from past successes and challenges and those encountered during implementation.We ensures that relevant progress and performance information is collected processed and analyzed on a regular basis to allow for real-time, evidence-based decision-making; (c) the various processes and methods for monitoring (such as regular input and output data gathering and review, participatory monitoring, process monitoring) and for evaluation (including impact evaluation and thematic, surveys, economic analysis of efficiency (and (d) the Management Information System, which is an organized repository of data (often georeferenced) to assist managing key numeric information related to the project/plan and the analysis.
Civic engagement involves “working to make a difference in the civic life of one’s community and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes.”1 Civic engagement includes both paid and unpaid forms of political activism, environmentalism, and community and national service.2 Volunteering, national service, and service-learning are all forms of civic engagement.Youth civic engagement is defined as working to make a difference in the civic life of one’s community. It also involves developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values, and motivation to make that difference.6 These activities enrich the lives of youths and are socially beneficial to the community. Four interrelated constructs have been identified in the research literature as necessary for civic engagement (see Figure 1).FIGURE 1: FOUR CONSTRUCTS OF CIVIC ENGAGEMENT
Peace building and conflict resolution
SRDC peacebuilding initiatives owned and led by people in their own context. It includes small-scale grassroots initiatives, as well as activities undertaken on a wider scale. Peace Direct distinguishes between initiatives that are (1) locally led and owned, where local people and groups design the approach and set priorities, while outsiders assist with resources; (2) locally managed, where the approach comes from the outside, but is “transplanted” to local management; or (3) locally implemented, primarily an outside approach, including external priorities that local people or organizations are supposed to implement.Peacebuilding describes the myriad methods employed by people all over the world to improve prospects for peace. Peacebuilding includes a wide range of initiatives, from mediation, protection, reintegration, trauma healing and reconciliation, through to longer-term investments in fairer access to governance, education, health, justice, security and livelihoods
Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration
DDR activities are crucial components of both the initial stabilization of warn-torn societies as well as their long-term development. DDR must be integrated into the entire peace process from the peace negotiations through peacekeeping and follow-on peacebuilding activities.The objective of the DDR process is to contribute to security and stability in post-conflict environments so that recovery and development can begin. DDR helps create an enabling environment for political and peace processes by dealing with security problem that arises when ex-combatants are trying to adjust to normal life, during the vital transition period from conflict to peace and development.DDR supports ex-combatants to become active participants in the peace process through:removing weapons from the hands of combatants;taking the combatants out of military structures;integrating combatants socially and economically into society.
Political economic and security analysis
Political economy analysis asks where reform dynamics emerge and ultimately who or what can ‘block’ reforms that unleash the social and economic potential of developing countries.The political economy approach shows us that governance for development arises through domestic political processes and contest between interest groups. Such an approach to governance is based not on imposing ‘good practice’, but in looking for the ‘best fit’ to the local social and political context.
