New evaluation training courses

Some interesting courses coming up, in London UK:

Results in Advocacy
It is increasingly important for organisations to effectively measure the impact of their advocacy work, not only to inform programming, but for purposes of accountability to a range of stakeholders, including beneficiaries, donors, staff and volunteers. With competition for limited resources a reality, organisations which fail to demonstrate their impact, are arguably at increased risk of funding shortfalls and limit their ability to learn, adapt and evolve.
London – 13-15 April 2015

Participatory Action Research, Planning and Evaluation
This three-day workshop in London (UK) engages people in hands-on learning and practice using flexible and rigorous PAR tools developed and tested by an international community of practice in settings around the world. Participants will learn and apply practical tools for exploring problems, knowing the actors and assessing options. These tools and associated skills provide people with opportunities to mobilize knowledge from various sources and support collaborative thinking and planning for social change. Coaching support as follow-up to the workshop will help participants adapt and sequence tools for specific organizational contexts including monitoring and evaluation and grassroots capacity building initiatives (campaigns, advocacy, etc.).
London –  22-24 April 2015

The paper looks at how concepts of ‘value’ and ‘results’ are being applied to advocacy and campaigning and presents some alternative strategies for assessing advocacy. You can see the “value iceburg” below.

A guide to monitoring government policies

We often focus on the evaluation of advocacy that aims to influence government policies – but another important aspect is to monitor government policy as it develops (or not).

Here is a useful guide from CAFOD, Trocaire and Christian Aid on this subject: Monitoring government policies: A toolkit for civil society organisations in Africa (pdf).

It explains very well how policy is developed and when and how it can be monitored – very informative.
