    • Pilot case study
    • Case studies
    • Syntheses
    • Quality control
    • Follow up
3 evaluation information ii
3.Evaluation Information II
  • Combination of Evaluation Approaches
    • Overall: Utilisation-focus + Real World
    • Effectiveness assessment (key challenge):
      • Results-based
      • Outcome-oriented
      • Theory/Research based
  • Criteria
    • Used: DAC Eval criteria + Policy Coherence, Complementarity, Coordination
    • NOT found useful as additional criteria:
      • Linkages, Coverage, Values => is part of Relevance or/and Effectiveness
      • ‘Big picture’, because is covered under Policy Coherence
3 key findings conclusions
3. Key findings/conclusions
  • Strategy
    • CPS programme to be continued as it is a relevant complementary instrument BUT substantial changes required
    • Overall Profile of Instrument weak
    • Strategic gap needs to be closed (e.g. Country Strategies)
  • Operational
    • Better Mix of cooperation modalities + flexibility in way Expert Deployment is conducted
    • Many localised results not sufficiently impacting on broader CPPB
    • Effective Programmes and projects showed high level of horizontal and vertical linkages
    • Mainstreaming of Gender and sustainability weak
  • Management and Admin
    • Results-based monitoring and implementation weak but started
    • Admin procedures not fully supportive of programme goals
    • Steering capacity in Ministry needs to be strengthened
4 policy lessons i
4. Policy Lessons I
  • Civil Society Peacebuilding necessary but not sufficient -> part of coherent strategy
  • CPPB work needs to be Context-specific
    • Conflict Analysis not enough
    • Understanding of peacebuilding needs key
    • Analysis MUST be linked with implementation!
    • Integrating future scenarios/trends essential
    • Ongoing conflict monitoring a must
    • BASELINE studies for specific focus/sector of intervention required
4 policy lessons ii
4. Policy Lessons II
  • Programme designs for REACH
    • Clear focus + Linking grass-roots, national and int. level (ex. Cambodia)
    • Working with established institutions + key CS actors that can take over + have power to socialise people
    • Work with innovative groups and organisations
    • Combining project activities with dissemination strategies
    • Strategic partnering between peace and dev orgs
    • Results-based management
4 policy lessons eval
4. Policy Lessons EVAL
  • Evaluating Effectiveness of CPPB under data constraints remains a key Challenge
    • Pressure to produce concrete eval results besides weak data set remains high
    • Reconstructing baselines is often a myth
    • Reconstructing theories of change is possible BUT ..
    • Innovative combination of eval approaches needed (results, outcome + theory and /research)
  • Forget about Impact Assessment for CPPB???
  • 3C: Policy Coherence, Complementarity, Coordination are essential Criteria for CPPB work in all levels
