Outcome harvesting: Saferworld's approach

Monitoring, evaluation and learning is a core part of the work that humanitarian, development and peacebuilding organisations do. At Saferworld, we are committed to learning from our work so that those most affected by conflict and insecurity see the biggest changes.

We use ‘outcome harvesting’ to carry out regular monitoring of our work. Unlike other evaluation methods, outcome harvesting doesn’t involve measuring progress towards predetermined outcomes. Instead, it collects evidence of what has been achieved and works backwards to determine whether and how a programme or project contributed to this change. Our focus is on changes in the behaviour of those we seek to influence.

Having designed and developed our outcome harvesting approach over seven years, we are now offering one-day training workshops and bespoke training for individuals and organisations. This brochure introduces our approach to outcome harvesting and outlines the services we offer.
