Analysis & Impact

Working in fragile and conflict-affected contexts poses numerous challenges for international development and peacebuilding actors. Recurring cycles of violence, multiple emergencies, weak state legitimacy and state-society relations are all factors that call for an adapted work approach by actors engaged in such contexts. The swisspeace Analysis & Impact Program contributes to improved analysis, strategy development and monitoring and evaluation practice by supporting organizations to assess - and ultimately increase - the effectiveness and positive impact of their peacebuilding and development interventions, and to minimize negative side effects.
