Linking Program Design and Evaluation in Peacebuilding: A Challenging Task

This report, “Linking Program Design and Program Evaluation: A Challenging Task,” captures the findings of a meta-review of program evaluation reports conducted by American University’s Center for Peacebuilding and Development and Search for Common Ground. The review looked at a variety of program design elements and evaluation methodologies from a selection of evaluation reports from the Portal to examine what range of practices are being implemented, in both design and evaluation, and to identify where there are areas for growth for peacebuilding program design, monitoring, and evaluation.
