Policy-makers and practitioners in the fields of peacebuilding, security and development still lack critical skills in results-based management (RBM) and monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL). This course, now in its 9th year, provides skills development in these disciplines, with results-based approaches and theories of change, as well as the implementation of monitoring and evaluation. The course is aimed at practitioners wanting to extend or upgrade their expertise. An online course is part of the preparatory requirement to make better use of the time in Geneva, and there is emphasis on complex environments, with Outcome Mapping, Outcome Harvesting and the Cynefin framework included. The learning focusses on practical work in small groups, based on case studies.
