This guidance document provides an introduction to the overall approach for the assessment; an overview of methods used; and issues for consideration when using these or similar methods.
It is based on the consultants’ experience of carrying out the assessment in Kailahun, Sierra Leone over five and a half days in September 2015. The methods section contains an introduction to each method, notes about facilitation, and identification of some benefits of use.
Please note, this document is not intended to be a comprehensive set of guidelines on delivering these methods. It is an accompaniment to the main report, Stand strong: women and politics, Kailahun, Sierra Leone. Both are part of Christian Aid’s 2015 impact assessment on governance programming.
