  • OH-pract-NL / Outcome Harvesting Community of Practitioners
    This online Community of Practice is a platform for Outcome Harvesting practitioners in NGOs and civil society organisations from predominantly the Netherlands. Here we exchange experiences in implementing outcome harvesting for monitoring & evaluation and learning. We share resources and information, such as guidances to start up outcome harvesting within our organisations, and train colleagues, partners and CSOs to formulate outcomes. We exchange emails asking eachother questions on how others deal with the different aspects of putting the methodology into practice. The platform supports improvement of our practices - under the motto "Good Practices to Assure the Quality" - and advocate Outcome Harvesting as a trustworthy method for the M&E of Strategic Partnership grants (the financial framework 'Dialogue & Dissent' of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and other financial schemes of donors. The Dgroup tools for this community enables us to easily share with the group members through regular email messages. Responding to eachother's emails is through a simple reply or sending a new email with a new subject, right from your own email box. All previous emails, uploaded documents and much more is accesible through and archived on our online platform: [ link to OH Online Platform ( https://dgroups.io/g/OH-pract-NL ) ]. We hope that this stimulates the participants to use and share as frequent as deemed useful. We aim it to be accessible for all, and especially for those of us that are relatively new to Outcome Harvesting. We know from own experience as PMEL coordinators that when starting up and developing OH further within our respective organisations, we are confronted with so many (small) questions and (large) dilemmas. Please feel welcome to share yours and contribute! ------ NB: This community was initiated early 2017 by PMEL Coordinators of 15 Strategic Partnership grantees from the Netherlands working at: Amref, BothEnds, Cordaid, FPU, GPPAC, Hivos, IUCN, Milieudefensie, Oxfam Novib, PAX, SNV, Tropenbos International, Rutgers, and Wetlands International. We have in common that we are in different phases to implement outcome harvesting for our PME approaches. Paul Kosterink of GPPAC has further facilitated the community including the organisation of 'live' workshops in 2017 and 2018 under the motto "Good Practices to Assure the Quality".

  • artemisia-ssg / Artemisia Scientific Steering Group
    *The Artemisia Scientific Steering Group seek to promote access to Artemisia as a mean against malaria by:* * Supporting the scientific research, both agronomic and medical, necessary to convince WHO to lift its ban on the use and marketing of the plant so as to encourage all official bodies, including specialized United Nations bodies involved in agriculture, health, education and human rights, to contribute to accelerating the controlled dissemination of these Artemisia; * The organization of symposiums in Africa on Artemisia effective against malaria and other tropical infectious disease. These conferences: o Treat the benefits of plants as repellents against malaria vectors and other insect-borne diseases, as prophylactics and cures against tropical infectious diseases; o Bring together African national official authorities and WHO and other relevant United Nations bodies, African and international researchers, plant practitioners; The Steering Group is composed of African and international biologists, pharmacists, doctors, chemists, economists, agronomists and practitioners of Artemisia concerned to contribute to the development of these plants in Africa. The Steering Group acts at the African national and regional levels as well as at the international level. *Researchers on the* *Steering Group will regularly share their research results and field experiences, including cultural practices and dosages applied.* It is directed by Researcher Rosine Désirée Chougouo Kengne of the University of Mountains of Cameroon. *Context of the creation of this Group:* Participants at the IDAY-International General Assembly in Conakry in March 2019 propose the creation of a Pan-African Scientific Steering Group to accelerate the dissemination of Artemisia annua and afra in Africa in accordance with WHO standards. Indeed, considering that: * Malaria still kills more than 400,000 people a year worldwide, including 366,000 African children, or 1,000 children a day; * The World Health Organization (WHO) reports on malaria in 2017 and 2018 show that: o since 2016, progress against malaria has been stagnant o In Africa, the incidence rate is 219 per 1,000 people (world average: 59/1000) o The most affected countries are experiencing an increase in incidence (in Africa Nigeria, DRC, Mozambique, Uganda and India) o Resistance to pesticides used on mosquito nets and to one or more of the two components of Artemisinine-based Combination Therapy (ACT) has emerged around the world o ACTs are frequently used against diseases other than malaria, thus unnecessarily accelerating the emergence of resistance * 50% of ACTs distributed in trade in Africa are counterfeit; * The shelf-life of ACTs under tropical climatic conditions is limited; * The official means used (ACT, impregnated mosquito nets, indoor pesticides, early diagnosis, treatment for pregnant women) are expensive, with the consequence that they are not accessible to all, also taking into account the limitations of the amounts of international funding available; * There are serious doubts about the sustainability of the official approach, as Richard Horton already mentioned in a 2011 article and as confirmed by the resurgence of malaria in countries such as India and Mozambique where malaria had been virtually eradicated; * Nearly 70% of the African population uses community medicine; * The enormous potential of Artemisia annua and afra as established by the history of the plant in China, the countless field observations in Africa and elsewhere, the extensive research both in vitro and in vivo on the plant, and in particular those demonstrating a lower sensitivity of plants to the creation of resistance; * The diagnosis by many African authorities that they would not succeed in achieving the Sustainable Development Goal (SDO) affected by malaria (SDOs 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3) without the intervention of new means of control; * Malaria has real impacts on the social and economic development of affected countries.

  • gladlivestock / Global sustainable Livestock Advocacy for Development
    This is a space for people to share ideas and discuss ways to support sustainable livestock in developing countries - mainly through evidence generation, communication, policy advocacy and engagement. Evidence ( https://whylivestockmatter.org ( https://whylivestockmatter.org/ ) ) indicates that l *ivestock are critical for sustainable development yet often overlooked.* The world’s cows, sheep, goats, pigs, poultry and other farm animals are the mainstay of livelihoods across the developing world. And the energy and nutrient-dense milk, meat and eggs these animals produce provide hundreds of millions of families in the world’s poorer countries with basic livelihoods, incomes, food and nutrition. This space is supported by the global sustainable livestock advocacy for development project (led by ILRI ( https://www.ilri.org/ ) ) as part of efforts to increase investment in sustainable livestock and counter negative views of livestock in industrialized nations. Our aim is to help catalyse a community of sustainable livestock advocacy champions, connecting efforts and supporting concerted efforts globally.
