What is it?

As necessary, consider holding separate conversations with women and/or with ethnic or other minority groups to consolidate arguments ahead of the Knowledge Group analysis. Photo: Oxfam in Ghana

A VRA is a multi-stakeholder process. It brings together women and men from different livelihoods, religions and socio-economic groups, including the private sector, with decision-makers from local and/or national governments.

Why do one?

  • To promote dialogue, trust and shared action amongst different groups and stakeholders.
  • To collaboratively generate useful information and action to inform a country strategy.
  • To collaboratively support the design of a programme or project in a new area.
  • As part of baseline assessments and end-term evaluations of a MEAL plan.
  • To inform an advocacy, campaign or influencing strategy.
  • To broaden the scope of resilience, livelihood, DRR or climate change adaptation programming.
