Lessons Learned from the application of Outcome Mapping to an IDRC EcoHealth project: A double-acting participatory process

  1. 1. Lessons Learned from the application of Outcome Mapping to an IDRC EcoHealth project: a double-acting participatory process. Outcome Mapping Reflection of the Ecosystem Approaches to the Better Management of Zoonotic Emerging Infectious Diseases in the Southeast Asia Region (EcoZD) project The 1st Pan Asia-Africa Monitoring & Evaluation Forum, Bangkok, Thailand 2012 Tohtubtiang, K., Assé, R., Wisartsakul, W., and Gilbert , J.
  2. 2. Introduction Presentation Overview •  Outcome Mapping (OM) and its essence •  Rationale of using of OM •  The process of developing outcomes •  Assessing outcomes •  Outcomes: capacity building & organisational development •  Conclusion
  3. 3. Outcome Mapping & Its Essence 3 Key Concepts of Outcome Mapping (OM) A participatory planning, and M&E tool which emphasises 3 concepts: •  Outcomes = Targeted changes in attitude, knowledge, practices, and behaviour at stakeholder levels. Ø  Changes in personal and organisational levels Ø  Targeted changes contribute to impact (not attribution) •  Targeted stakeholders or Boundary Partners (BP) Source: Outcome Mapping Learning Community http://www.outcomemapping.ca/
  4. 4. Outcome Mapping & Its Essence 3 Key Concepts of Outcome Mapping (OM) •  Social and organisational learning. Goal I will change gradually in The goal is capability / behavior. All outcome my depend on my intention response, I want it BP   BP   My goal is to increase BPs’ capability, Proje encourage BPs to ct   I realize my change their behavior. own limitation Source: Outcome Mapping Learning Community http://www.outcomemapping.ca/
  5. 5. Project Overview Ecosystem Approaches to the Better Management of Zoonotic Emerging Infectious Diseases in the Southeast Asia Region (EcoZD) •  Funded by International Development Research Centre, Canada (IDRC) •  5-year project implemented by International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) •  Goals: capacity building & evidence-based knowledge •  8 Research & outreach teams in 6 countries.
  6. 6. Rationale for the use of OM OM process compliments & reinforces: •  EcoZD’s goal: capacity ü  Non-linear, iterative building process •  EcoHealth Concept. ü  Systems Thinking ü  Transdisciplinary collaboration ü  Participatory methods ü  Equity (social justice) ü  Knowledge to action ü  Sustainability
  7. 7. The Process of Developing Outcomes 3 Stages of OM Source: Outcome Mapping Learning Community http://www.outcomemapping.ca/
  8. 8. The Process of Developing Outcomes A Two-layer process Layer 1: Relationship between EcoZD project & 8 teams to influence teams’ changes in knowledge, attitude, and practices (KAP). Layer 2: Relationship between teams & their Boundary Partners (BPs) to support BPs’ changes in KAP. Layer  2     CHI   CAM   Layer  1     Para   IND   VTN   professional   ILRI-­‐ EcoZD   Slaughterhouse   LAO   JTV   owners      CMU    UGM   Students  
  9. 9. The Process of Developing Outcomes Progress Markers (PMs) PMs = a set of gradual development of Boundary Partners (BPs) towards expected outcomes. PMs are collaboratively developed and mutually agreed by the project & BPs. PMs - not static & respond to project’s changing situation.
  10. 10. The Process of Developing Outcomes OM process in both layers accentuates ‘Cycle of Learning’ •  Understanding  purposes   Internal   •  Analysing  Stakeholders   •  Using  Progress   exchange  of   Markers  as  a   info.  &     framework   understanding   •  Progress  Makers   •  Improving  strategies   development  &   based  on  feedbacks   confirmaIon   received     •  Self-­‐assessment   •  Feedback  from   Boundary  Partners   ParBcipatory   Adapt  &  Plan   interacBon   Process  with   BPs  
  11. 11. Assessing Outcomes As a part of ‘Cycle of Learning’ Capacity •  Progress Makers development Building for BPs & confirmation •  Self-assessment & evidence Organisational given by Boundary Partners Learning •  Feedback from Boundary Partners ParBcipatory   Process  with   BPs   Outcome Journal, Performance Journal
  12. 12. Assessing Outcomes Information from self-assessment and feedback from BPs are used in strategic planning. •  Using Progress Markers as a framework •  Improving strategies based on feedbacks received AdapBng  &   Planning   interacBon  
  13. 13. Assessing Outcomes Layer 1 & Layer 2 Progress Markers (PMs) Key themes of PMs: Layer 1: EcoZD – Teams Layer 2: Teams – BPs •  Understanding and applying •  BPs’ improved understanding/ EcoHealth principles. specific knowledge. •  Communicating research •  BPs’ changes in practices. findings. •  BPs’ communication of •  Networking & policy particular knowledge/ practices engagement. to communities.
  14. 14. Assessing Outcomes Layer 1: self assessment CHI CAM VTN Team Team Team PM 1: Have an increased understanding of EcoHealth principles, goals, and cost-benefits H H- M compared with previous research PM 3: Strategically plan communication L L+ M- and dissemination of research findings to Boundary Partners
  15. 15. Outcomes & capacity building Layer 1 Outcomes: changes in KAP of teams Attitude & Knowledge Changes «  CA M : Towa r d t ra n s d i s c i p l i n a r y collaboration «  CHI: Engaging in policy-making process, a do-able attempt. Practice Changes «  VTN: Intentional dissemination of research findings
  16. 16. Outcomes & capacity building Layer 1 Outcomes: what does EcoZD project learn? Organisational Learning: «  Research management & the success of EcoHealth research: administration, communication, and time management. «  An intentional knowledge transfer is a necessary step for capacity building.
  17. 17. Outcomes & capacity building Layer 2 Outcomes: changes in KAP of BPs Attitude & Knowledge Changes «  Indonesia Team and its interaction with BPs, Rabies Cadres
  18. 18. Outcomes & capacity building Layer 2 Outcomes: changes in KAP of BPs Practices Changes: «  Thailand – Vietnam team & better hygienic practices of slaughterhouse owners March 2012 August 2012
  19. 19. Outcomes & capacity building Layer 2 Outcomes Organisational Learning: what do teams learn from this process? «  Integrate lessons learned into strategic planning & practical action plans: examples from Cambodia Team & China Team.
  20. 20. Conclusion «  OM is used as a framework for the process of developing outcomes and also a formative reflection which contributes to project management. «  Challenges faced by implementation of this process: 1) subjectivity of the tool, 2) seen as a seperate part of the project, 3) resources, especially time & skills of personnel in the teams.
