Design, Monitoring and Evaluation for Programming in Fragile Environments - ONLINE and SELF-PACED COURSE

Tools for demystifying design, monitoring and evaluation processes in order to demonstrate success

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. 

Designed and developed in partnership between U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) and the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), the "Design, Monitoring and Evaluation for Programming in Fragile Environments" is an online course for project and program management professionals.

This course presents the foundational knowledge and skills in design, monitoring, and evaluation practice which enables professionals to successfully demonstrate programmatic efficacy through results-based management. The better projects are designed at the beginning, the stronger the monitoring and evaluation tools will be to gather necessary data to ensure they are on target towards the intended outcomes and impact. The knowledge and skills are critical to ensure that risks to stakeholders are minimised, outcomes are clearly measured to maximise program impact, work is contributing to the knowledge base of the field, and that limited resources are being used efficiently.

After taking this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Design effective programs in fragile and conflict prone environments
  2. Articulate a theory of change to reveal and test underlying assumptions in a program
  3. Design and implement a results framework to track a program’s intended outcomes and impacts
  4. Determine relevant data collection methods in fragile environments
  5. Understand the essentials about evaluation design
