Social Cohesion and Transitional Development Assistance


The Social Sustainability and Inclusion Global Practice at the World Bank and the Social Cohesion Team at the German Institute of Development and Sustainability (IDOS) conducted the fourth session of the Social Cohesion Online Seminar series on 22 September 2022.

Henriette Sachse (Deputy Head of Division at the Department of Transitional Development Assistance under the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development - BMZ) and Andrew Kaiser-Tedesco (GIZ) shared the results from an evidence review and learning agenda setting exercise. The evidence review covered rigorous impact evaluations on social cohesion building interventions in fragile contexts. The learning agenda exercise prioritized the most pressing research questions in social cohesion programming from TDA’s perspective. The results are relevant for all peace actors in fragile contexts.

Aim were:

  • Present and discuss results of the studies
  • Identify areas of common interest and  the relevance of the gaps for other organizations active in this field
  • Discuss how the answers to these questions might have far-reaching implications for peace programming.

  • Andrew Kaiser-Tedesco, Evidence Specialist in Transitional Development Assistance, GIZ



  • Nikolas Myint, Global Lead, Social Cohesion & Resilience, The World Bank



  • Julia Leininger, Head of Programme: Transformation of Political (Dis)-Order, German Development Institute (IDOS)


Overall, the fourth session of the seminar series highlighted evidence gaps that all organisations in this field encounter and discussed the implications these have. What do we know works and what activities we do are not backed by evidence of impact?  What gaps should we prioritize filling? How do can effectively we arrange processes to generate evidence on the most important questions?
