2020 EO: Formative evaluation of UNICEF engagement of young people in peacebuilding

Executive summary


This evaluation seeks to assess UNICEF-supported peacebuilding programmes, including those funded through the Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) and Peacebuilding Architecture (PBA) frameworks, and the extent to which they serve young people as “a unique demographic dividend that can contribute to lasting peace and prosperity”. The evaluation will focus on the objectives, approach, relevance, coverage, and intended results/outcomes of selected peacebuilding programmes. It will particularly seek to explore young people’s role and participation in UNICEF-supported peacebuilding programmes, to build evidence of effectual programmes that would then presented as options for scaling up as part of the UNICEF young people’s agenda.


The evaluation will pursue two objectives, namely:

  1. To describe the role of young people in UNICEF-supported peacebuilding programmes and projects, and to determine the scope and coverage of the programmes.
  2. To assess the evidence about peacebuilding programmes and/or approaches that work well, and are sustainable so that they can be considered for replication and/or upscaling under the UNICEF young people’s agenda.

This evaluation will be limited to on-going peacebuilding programmes implemented by UNICEF country offices, often in partnership with UN sister organizations. Programmes implemented by other organizations which are believed to be highly successful, and/or to be modelling best practice in achieving peacebuilding outcomes for young people, will also be considered.

The assessment will mainly be qualitative in nature and involve the following:

  1. a review of relevant documentation,
  2. key informant interviews (KIIs) with a broad range of stakeholders,
  3. participatory focus group discussions (FGDs) with young people and
  4. walking tours of field sites
