Peacebuilding Analysis & Impact

Working in fragile and conflict-affected contexts poses numerous challenges for international development and peacebuilding actors. The magnitude of the challenge posed by recurring cycles of violence, multiple emergencies, weak legitimacy and state-society relations require an adapted work approach by all actors engaged in such contexts. The PAI Program therefore contributes to an improved analysis, strategy development and monitoring & evaluation practice. It supports organizations to assess and ultimately increase the effectiveness and positive impact of their peacebuilding and development interventions and to minimize negative side effects.
