Adaptive management involves testing, monitoring, getting feedback, and crucially, making adaptations and course corrections, as necessary. Effective adaptive management requires a programme to be able to learn, reflect, decide, and then act. ReDSS work is based on an approach that takes the complexity of durable solutions processes as its starting point. This means that the ReDSS adaptive management approach begins from a position of uncertainty about which outputs are the right ones for getting to outcome-level change, which requires an iterative process of testing and learning. Throughout the year, ReDSS supported its partners consistently to adapt their programme activities based on emerging evidence and analysis. Click below for:
