Themes - Adaptive-programming

When we focus on addressing a specific problem with local actors that have the agency to act, we know that we stand the best chance of creating a longer term and larger scale democratic impact. For this reason, WFD has developed several tools that tap into leading research on effective, non-gendered or discriminatory information-gathering to enable us to identify problems and change-agents around which we can design and implement our programmes.

Our toolkit includes a targeted scoping phase that enables us to identify thematic areas of potential impact, and a ‘live’ political economy analysis process that taps into the realities of operating in volatile and complex environments. These tools help to ensure that WFD gathers, reflects, and responds to relevant context information as part of its overall problem-driven approach to providing democracy assistance.
