Call for proposals for Peacebuilding M&E Solutions Forum

The Peacebuilding Evaluation Consortium is seeking proposals for its first Peacebuilding M&E Solutions Forum on Tuesday, 23 October 2018, co-hosted with the United States Institute of Peace. The deadline for proposals is this Friday, July 6.

The Peacebuilding M&E Solutions Forum is an opportunity for practitioners to come together, network and connect with people working in this space, and collectively share best practices, lessons learned, results, and evidence from across the broad spectrum of M&E activities in peacebuilding programming. The Solutions Forum will be an occasion for action learning through roundtable discussions to share creative, flexible, and successful strategies to pressing M&E problems in the peacebuilding field.

Who is eligible to submit a proposal: Organizations who implement direct peacebuilding programming are encouraged to submit a proposal. Programs that are implemented in fragile and conflict affected countries that address grievances, violence reduction, and prevention but are not peacebuilding programming specifically will also be accepted on a case-by-case basis.

In order to share best practices, lessons learned, results, and evidence across the broad spectrum of M&E, the Peacebuilding M&E Solutions Forum will accept proposals that illustrate innovative methodologies to any of the following:

  • Qualitative and quantitative data collection
  • Monitoring systems and tools
  • Evaluation tools
  • Data quality assurance
  • Data analysis
  • Data visualization
  • Knowledge management
  • Institutional learning and knowledge translation
  • Data protection

Programs do not need to have completed a formal internal or external evaluation to be qualified to share evidence. Evidence incorporates methodological processes and results as well as evaluative and scientific evidence. As such, applicants may be at the project midline, endline or post programming to apply.

Please review the details on the Peacebuilding M&E Solutions Forum for specific guidance on submitting a proposal.

Proposal Deadline: The Peacebuilding M&E Solutions Summit is accepting proposals for the first round of submissions between June 4 – July 6, 2018.

Selected proposals for presentation will be notified by 27 July 2018.
