  We provide an overview over the concepts, pitfalls and challenges involved in conducting scientifically sound impact evaluations and randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in conflict-affected and fragile states or areas. We consider both interventions aimed at preventing and overcoming war, conflict and insecurity as well as interventions targeted at common socio- economic outcomes such as livelihoods, employment, microfinance, health or poverty which happen to be in insecure or post-conflict reconstruction environments....

  Violent conflict is a key obstacle to overall economic development and specifically to human development. Conflicts vary greatly in their nature – hence the impacts of conflicts on people also vary greatly. If socioeconomic research on conflict has demonstrated one thing, it is that the circumstances of conflict matter greatly for policies designed to end and overcome the legacies of conflict....

In a field that specializes in dialogue, consensus building, and finding solutions to complex challenges, surprisingly absent is an open exchange on a fundamental element of peacebuilding: the determination of whether or not an intervention has “worked.” Yet the reality is that the power dynamics inherent in evaluation make a lack of dialogue among funders and implementers understandable....

The toolkit contains guidance and tools on how to plan, design, implement, monitor and evaluate advocacy strategies for national evaluation policies and systems that are equity-focused and gender-responsive.

The idea [of this presentation] is, rather than having our 50'country programs fishing around more or less for the same sets of performance measures, you know, here's something that we can have that's centralized, while not cast in stone, so this is something they can use as a template to learn from, to base their efforts on, and so it should stimulate that kind of learning process that is part and parcel of CRS's project development cycle, and then, finally, obviously most importantly, these need to be consistent with the standards or the requirements from our public donors, such as USAID. ...
