Member Feedback:

  • Christo: Need to focus not only on number & scale, but credible impact and outcomes evidence; also who is the audience?
  • Mobilization of LFC Learning Hub: How can the hub advance the overall quality of information and show the change that can occur when mobilizing local faith actors
  • Mobilizing faith actors work is an enabling and social change process; hard to show how this can be attributed to the change; not always in easily quantified ways
  • What can members contribute to quality of evidence and type of evidence around this theme? Additional case studies?
    • OIAC & ICM: within hub partnership on evidence; Lincoln traveled to Nairobi- good way to cross pollinate ideas; agri programs through local churches; could share the Philippines data collection methods and adapt for E Africa
    • NIFAA
    • COH—academic process ..think tank..what do we have where should we be moving ?
  • Catriona: especially within Tearfund, staff have been focusing on type and quality of evidence
  • Action: Members to use the talking points as a scope of work. Hub will take up strengtheningUse at JLI meeting in Sri Lanka
  • Deborah: first meeting, good to hear about the hub, will consider how to contribute
  • Lauren: how to communicate the ability to learn from past experience, especially those that did not turn out quite right – showcase in ppt
