IUCN Uganda, the Shared Resources Joint Solutions (SRJS) lead partner on Planning Monitoring Evaluation and Learning, organized a training for partners on Outcome Harvesting from the 6th – 8th February 2018, at Royale Suites Hotel in Kampala. The purpose of the training was to familiarize partners with the principles and practice of the outcome harvesting methodology to enable them track change in behavior of social actors targeted by the SRJS Program. The training was facilitated by Peter Magara (IUCN Monitoring and Evaluation Associate) and Evelyne Busingye (Program Officer IUCN Uganda).
Outcome Harvesting will complement the Capacity assessment and Partnership tools that have already been rolled out in the program. The 3-day workshop was intended to introduce the OH tool and the OH Process to all implementing partners and strengthen partners capacities and reporting skills for harvested outcomes. It also analyzes and interprets sets of outcomes, provides information on early emerging results for the project and enables the implementing partners design a schedule / road map for their annual OH activities.
The focus of the training was on the rationale for outcome harvesting and its value addition to the SRJS program. It Introduced the methodology which identifies social actors and formulates outcome descriptions, the monitoring & review process, the analysis (making sense of outcomes harvested) and finally communication and reporting of these outcomes.
The training workshop consisted of 19 participants from the SRJS partnership i.e. ECOTRUST, NAPE, AFIEGO and IUCN.
A thank you to IUCN for making this possible.
