Finalist RibbonToday’s peacebuilders work in complex and dynamic societies: the ability to pause for reflection and adapt is critical. What we have learned is that developing a gamified and experiential tool that facilitates exploration through unpacking the ecosystem we are working within has demonstrated the power of openness, reflective inquiry, and adaptive management to improve programs.

Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting (CLA) were central to the development of this tool. The reinforcing nature of CLA not only helped Search improve its tool (and continues to do so for future iterations) but also enhances Search’s CLA practice internally.

Note: This year's case competition entry form included a new question about whether or not the highlighted CLA approach(es) contribute to a country’s Journey to Self-Reliance.The response to this question was not scored as part of the judging process.
