Better Programming Initiative – Options to improve the impact of programmes

The Better Programming Initiative (BPI) is an initiative born of the conviction that in communities affected by violence, well-planned aid programming with alternative and creative implementation options can support local capacities for recovery and reconciliation. It was recognised by trained field delegates and NS staff that this tool can also be used in any contexts and not just in post conflict and in situations where violence was prevalent. The BPI provides an element of analyses that links the emergency to the longer-term response. BPI is not just a broader planning and impact assessment methodology but also a capacity building mechanism. This leaflet provides an overview of the analytical steps of the BPI. Published in 2003.
