Outcomes & impact measurement is needed for ensuring social results
Financial flows towards developmental issues, poverty reduction and environmental measures are growing, under many schemes : philantropy, impact investment, corporate social responsibility, market mechanisms driven to specific issues, public goods and services financing,...
Nevertheless the precise understanding of outcomes and impacts resulting from these investments are often lightly considered, for economical, capacity or prioritization reasons. This leads to sometimes important misallocation of resources and inappropriate decision-making. Robust outcomes and impacts evaluation are needed for getting all the social results sought by these most welcome investments !
Reduce impact measurement costs by sharing expertise and providing tools
We try to share our expertise in outcomes and impact measure of development and poverty reduction initiatives. Our team's experience has shown us that it is not impossible nor highly to build evaluation schemes along with the programs implementations, and that it provides significant results : better understanding of our actions, better decision-making, long-term improvements of the investments, incentives towards implementation quality, etc.
We do not try to re-invent the wheel ! We keep ourselves updated on the growing and consolidating set of measurement methodologies that are well-accepted by implementers, financers, promoters... Customizations are often needed to fit the specificities but must always be articulated with standards or quasi-standards.
One major objective is cost reduction of outcomes & impacts measurements : for that we use and develop information technologies that allow to systematize repetitive actions, enhance the data storage and visualization, and facilitate multi-users reporting joint efforts.
