The IRC wishes to develop and pilot measurement tools that allow the humanitarian community to validly and reliably measure the impact of GBV programming in terms of psychosocial well-being and felt stigma.
In line with the results from the HIF GAP analysis, we have concluded that there are very limited ways of measuring outcomes for GBV survivors and the direct impact of GBV programs, which prevents the humanitarian community from fully understanding the need to, and how to, efficiently adapt interventions throughout the project cycle.
Measuring the impact of GBV programming with cutting edge monitoring and evaluation approaches is the foundation for becoming evidence-based and outcome driven. Finding innovative ways to measure outcomes and the impact of comprehensive GBV and women’s empowerment programs will close a significant gap within the sector.
For the IRC and other GBV actors, the ability to measure outcomes in GBV survivors’ psychosocial well-being and felt stigma will have immense impact – not only our ability to properly assess the successes of GBV response interventions over time but also to manifest and justify the need for continued funding in humanitarian settings. The impact will happen on three different levels:
The end goal is a set of measurement tools that have been piloted and validated among two different populations (Syrian refugees in Jordan and Somali/South Sudanese refugees in Kenya). The measurement tools will be accompanied by guidelines for adaptation to other humanitarian and development contexts. These resources would be widely available and launched at global, regional and national levels through (inter)national working groups and partners.
IRC tell us about their GBV project, which aims to develop measurement tools that allow the humanitarian community to measure the impact of GBV programming in terms of psychosocial well-being and felt stigmaView
IRC are in refugee camps in Jordan and Kenya to find out women’s thoughts and feelings around experiences of violenceView
IRC are thinking about reliability and validity whilst developing tools to measure the impact of GBV programming in terms of psychosocial well-being and felt stigmaView
IRC are piloting their M&E tools among 200 female GBV survivors in Kenya and Jordan, and received positive feedback that the tool is helpful for measuring outcomes of GBV interventions, and enables case managers to understand the burden of violenceView
As they enter the final stages of their GBV M&E project, IRC reflect on their innovation journey, a collaborative process that grew out of frustrations with current practicesView
IRC present their new GBV M&E tools, with which they wish to shift the focus from output to outcomes by measuring ‘felt stigma’ and ‘psychosocial functioning'View
