Knowledge matters - Concern’s experience and learning from the Graduation Approach

This is the second special edition of Knowledge Matters focused on the Graduation Approach. The first, published in 2014, focused on the success and challenges of early programmes in Burundi, Rwanda, Haiti and Zambia. Seven years later, we have taken the opportunity to reflect on the evolution of the approach within Concern and to explore specific themes (coaching, income generation, risk management, system strengthening, gender transformative programming, and monitoring and evaluation). We hope that this learning will inform the design and implementation of future programmes, with a particular focus on what is needed to achieve sustainability and scale.
