This lessons learned document is the product of IRC’s HIF funded project to collectively identify innovative opportunities to strengthen the measurement of GBV programming in the Great Lakes region of Sub-Saharan Africa.  The project sought to achieve this through the creation of a shared space where GBV actors could:

  1. discuss and learn from their respective experiences
  2. open dialogue with select innovators from East Africa.

The objective was not only to better measure outcomes for GBV survivors in the region – but also to explore approaches that ensure that the data and learning from M&E is used systematically, and is fedback into IRC programming to improve their services.

The outcomes of this initiative are captured in the results statements below:

  • A sound common problem analysis that systematically identifies practical and ethical challenges of monitoring the impact of GBV programming in Burundi and DRC displaced populations.
  • Root causes for each of the challenges identified, based on practitioners’ field experience and recent IRC research, pulled together with lessons learned across the three countries in one summary document.
  • Innovative approaches to measure more effectively GBV programme results are developed based on the rigorous problem and root cause analysis and the involvement of East African Innovators.

Read the full report to learn how IRC were able to achieve the above results and what they learnt along the way.
