What do we know about interventions for building peaceful societies? What don’t we know?
Over 1.8 billion people, close to a quarter of the world’s population, live in fragile contexts. Estimates suggest that by 2030 over 80 per cent of the world’s poorest will be living in fragile contexts. With increasing resources dedicated to addressing fragility and conflict, there is a growing demand for high quality evidence to support policymaking and programming to build peaceful societies.
The webinar will present findings from the new evidence gap map (EGM) of interventions to build peaceful societies, a partnership between 3ie and DEval made possible with generous support from BMZ.
The EGM maps out the evidence base of 275 studies — impact evaluations and systematic reviews — that address efforts to build peaceful societies in fragile contexts. In this webinar, Ada Sonnenfeld, lead author of the study, will present the key findings of the project and share tips on how to use the online, interactive EGM and its findings to improve peacebuilding programming and research.
