IBP’s approach to learning is multi-faceted – from frontline action to organizational strategy. We seek to balance rigorous assessment and learning with practical and strategic application of evidence and insights
. This involves rigorous problem analysis, the development of theories of action and facilitating cycles of action, reflection and adaptation. We bring together diverse evidence and insights about context, our approaches, how and why change may or may not be happening and necessary adjustments based on evidence and observations.
IBP’s learning for the coming years is guided by the following strategic questions:
- What kinds of partnerships, relationships and coalitions contribute most to effective reform efforts? How do we advance policies and enable reform to benefit the most marginalized?
- What are the barriers and obstacles to more inclusive, equitable and accountable fiscal governance, policies and service delivery? How do we ensure our strategies address these effectively?
- How do we leverage key strategic elements – from evidence and analysis to collective citizen action – to advance meaningful and sustainable reforms around fiscal policy and governance?
- How do we ensure gains we make in fiscal governance work translate into meaningful impacts for marginalized populations?
