Measuring Overall Impact of East Africa CVE

Africa U.S. Department of State 2016 2018

Working with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Conflict Stabilization Operations (CSO), DevTech is conducting a mixed-methods impact evaluation of the FY15 Counterterrorism Partnership Fund (CTPF) Countering Violent Extremism programming in select countries in East Africa. This evaluation will measure the collective effect of CTPF programming on reducing violent extremist (VE) recruitment and activity in targeted communities across the region.

The DevTech evaluation team is currently conducting both quantitative and qualitative data collection. Qualitative data collection includes key informant interviews and focus group discussions with community members and other key stakeholders. Quantitative data collection includes a household survey that captures respondent demographics, attitudes, and experiences with drivers of recruitment and activity. Survey data will be used to establish a panel dataset for end-line analysis.
