This Pilot Toolkit is designed to assist WBG teams—and by extension support dialogue with partners and clients—on measuring peacebuilding and state-building progress. It is an interactive, accessible, and user-friendly resource to help inform strategic and operational results frameworks and enhance practical data collection efforts. While the Toolkit fills an immediate WBG need, the guidance and accompanying indicator database can also be used by a much broader audience of policymakers, civil society, and regional and international institutions seeking to increase their capacity to measure results in countries affected by FCV.
The Toolkit is accompanied by a searchable FCV indicator database. Together, the Toolkit modules and database provide users with concrete suggestions on how to establish a monitoring system and how to choose indicators to design, track progress, and evaluate projects and programs in an FCV context. The Toolkit was prepared based on extensive research, consultation, and review of monitoring systems and indicators being used across the World Bank Group and the international community. As a pilot product, the content of the modules and database will continue to evolve based on user feedback and further experience.
The Toolkit and the database can enable users to better plan, monitor, and evaluate priorities and programs in FCV settings. The goal is more “FCV-sensitive” and efficient approaches and promote greater attention to state- and peace-building priorities. The Toolkit offers advice on how to better track core priorities across multiple sectors and harness the potential of partners, improve results and risk frameworks, and plan for more effective interventions using new kinds of data and information collection technologies.
