Happy hump day, evaluation enthusiasts! On March 10, 2016, I participated in a CLA brown bag hosted by USAID LEARN during which Ella Duncan, Charles Christian, and Morgane Ortmans presented on Search for Common Ground‘s CLA work in Lebanon. The group spoke about how participatory, reflective practices are essential in SFCG’s work in peace-building. These practices help SFCG teams adapt to rapidly changing contexts and achieve sustainable impacts toward peace. This is especially true in Lebanon, where SFCG projects are addressing ongoing conflict factors, including working through tensions resulting from the influx of Syrian refugees, security sector reform, and women’s socioeconomic empowerment. Check out my thoughts on the session and take a look at the visual recap below!
