Welcome
Day 1 January 11, 2011 Strategies
Day 2 January 12, 2011 Indicators
Day 3 January 13, 2011 Tools

This discussion focused on practical strategies, indicators and tools developed in a learning network of five USAID grantees (Banyan Global, Columbia University, IRIS Center, Land O' Lakes and Mercy Corps). Members of the learning network implemented research grants with the objectives of increasing understanding of the potential or limits of interventions to promote poverty reduction and conflict/fragility-mitigation, developing measures of poverty reduction and conflict/fragility-mitigation impacts and promoting learning in the evaluating and assessing poverty in conflict/fragile states communities.

Combining both practitioner and academic perspectives, discussion facilitators addressed practical issues in implementing field research on the linkages between poverty and conflict.

Each day of the Speakers Corner was devoted to a different cross-cutting theme (Day 1 – Strategies, Day 2 – Indicators, Day 3 – Tools). Facilitators referenced the findings of their recent field research in describing their experiences and common challenges as they pursued the elusive goal of finding a causal link between poverty and conflict. Discussion focused on their lessons learned and on the knowledge products they created that will be of interest to the development community. The questions that the learning network members were not able to answer were also frankly addressed. Participants were invited to ask questions and share their own experiences with the facilitators.
