Nearly nine years of conflict in Syria has left many people, whether inside or outside the country, vulnerable to many different forms of GBV.
Despite the reasonable number of organisations working on GBV in the area, the information needed on currently applied M&E practices, gaps, and innovative opportunities for development is still very limited.
This information is needed to successfully assess the impact and outcomes of such programmes, regardless of the presences of obstacles that include the nature of protracted crisis, conservative society, ever-changing dominance-map among fighting groups including extremists, and the highly competitive environment among implementing organisations.
This innovation project is in the problem recognition phase, and therefore aims to provide a deeper understanding of localised GBV M&E approaches.
This project will raise the perception level of stakeholders and organisations supporting GBV programmes by providing a better understanding of the current barriers, methodologies, and opportunities of innovation. It aims to support the development of more effective M&E tools that will support the measurement of the impact and outcomes of such programmes.
It is intended that this project will start with in-depth analysis, joint discussions, reflection, and information sharing. It will end identifying opportunities of innovation that will improve the flow of information, services, and optimal conclusions in M&E.
The additional information this project can provide – such as lessons learnt, success stories, case studies, strengths, weaknesses, and the initial materials and suggestions for M&E training and capacity building – will be helpful for practitioners and implementers and will further enrich the knowledge, studies, and the innovative ideas for those who are interested.

To provide new context-based perspectives and insights on measuring the impact of emergency programmes on GBV.
The more innovation opportunities the project can identify for measuring the impact of GBV programmes, the more effective and sustainable outcomes and goals we can achieve.
