Frequently Asked Questions
(Click to find out more)

How has COVID-19 impacted development work?

A lot has changed especially in the avenue of monitoring and evaluation. Currently, development initiatives are advised to use big data to track initiatives.

Have the lock down policies provided an avenue for violent extremism to thrive online?

There is a lot of misinformation on the opportunities present on the online space. Practitioners require caution when consuming information that would affect their programs.

What impact do the policies from government have on the economy and communities?

Governments are trying to respond to COVID-19 through the implementation of policies; with the most significant one being, the lock-down. However, a simple desktop review shows that the decisions that result in such policies, are not supported by data. The impact may seem positive, but detrimental in the long run.

What are the strategies to counter violent extremism?

Nations across the Horn have developed National Plans as a means of rallying their people to respond to the challenge of violent extremism. However, most of the plans are not contextualized to the local issues.

How do we know we are making an impact from CVE programs?

Monitoring and Evaluation for P/CVE programs is a challenge. However, there are means of determining the changes and the impact made from projects through the use of proxy indicators. An index can bring together different components to make it happen.

What is community resilience?

These are the local capacities that communities develop over time to respond to their challenges. These capacities ensure a community remains stable, adapt or change as a response strategy.
