Improving conflict prevention and peacebuilding assistance through evaluation

Evaluation and peacebuilding experts have been working together to encourage more and better evaluation of conflict prevention and peacebuilding programmes. Draft guidance has been produced and used over a two-year test phase to evaluate donor support for peacebuilding in southern Sudan, Sri Lanka, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti and elsewhere. This article looks at what has been learned from these experiences in terms of both policy lessons and how evaluation can be managed and carried out in these challenging settings. This series of evaluations has shown that progress is needed on a number of fronts – institutional, political, managerial etc. – to make development co-operation more effective in conflict affected and fragile states.
