Improving the impact of preventing violent extremism programming

A toolkit for deisign, monitoring and evaluation


In 2016, the UN Secretary-General put forward a Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism (PVE) and UNDP has developed a global framework which highlights that prevention needs to look beyond strict security concerns to development-related causes of and solutions to violent extremism, using a human rights-based approach.

A community of practice is developing to better inform PVE programming, but the systems and tools for understanding the suitability of PVE as an approach and the impact that PVE interventions have in different contexts have not yet been available.

This Design, Monitoring and Evaluation Toolkit helps to close this gap. It is designed for practitioners and partners who are working on programmes that are either specifically focused on PVE, or have PVE-relevant elements to them.
