What is a Rich Picture?
A rich picture is a drawing of a situation that illustrates the main elements and relationships that need to be considered in trying to intervene to create some improvement.
Impact evaluation of MFS-II (Co-Funding Framework of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs); assess the contribution of (1) the selected projects on their beneficiary populations, (2) the Dutch MSF organisation on the capacity of the selected southern partners and (3) the selected southern partner organisations on the civil society organisations with whom they have collaborated.
Most development initiatives take place in highly dynamic contexts: a diversity of people is involved and change processes are complex and uncertain. Guiding your development initiative towards impact involves navigating related challenges. In this three-week course you will strengthen your ability to play a significant role in managing for impact (M4I).
This asks for a proactive orientation toward people, context, and learning, and an integrative approach which connects strategic & operations management to monitoring & evaluation (M&E). Particular attention is given to the enabling environment in terms of capacities and conditions for M4I, including effective communication.
