2.1.3 Phase 3: Strengthening monitoring systems
|Recommended Actions||Minimum Questions|
|Review tensions in area based on feedback, staff views and public information to deepen conflict analysis||• Is it getting better, worse or staying the same?
• Are the triggers or causes linked to aid?
· What are the best, worst and most likely scenarios for the future of the conflict? What does each scenario depend on?
|Ensure feedback and response system is in place to help monitor tensions||• Are both beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries complaining?
• Are CARE and partner staff accessing safe spaces to discuss concerns?
• Who is responsible for gathering this information and discussing changes in programming?
• How are changes being communicated back to the local population
|Brainstorm and review all other ways that CARE’s programming could be causing harm?||• Is aid being diverted?
• Are people/institutions or customs that promote peace being undermined or ignored?
• Are local livelihoods being affected by our programming?
Does our programming reinforce the military position/objectives of a group (for example by encouraging people to move away from an area)
|Brainstorm options for achieving goals through alternative means if negative impacts apparent||• Can we change our partner selection, beneficiary criteria, distribution method, geographic focus, or aid material?|
|Ensure protection analysis been conducted that integrates gender and conflict dynamics||• Are women and men, girls and boys facing different risks?
• Is CARE’s support sensitive to these risks?
