GAIN Peacebuilding Indicators

CRS began the Globally-Accepted Indicators (GAIN) Initiative in June 2008 to strengthen indicator practice across sectors. GAIN has two main objectives: to improve the quality of indicator selection and use and to contribute to a more efficient M&E design process. GAIN is comprised of a series of indicator templates and a library of indicator resources with information to assist project teams in M&E system design, tool development, and in analysis and interpretation of data. This publication includes eighteen Globally-Accepted Indicators (GAIN) that present many of the necessary components and considerations for holistic M&E for Peacebuilding.
