If you are wondering whether your resources are being used effectively, you are not alone. Impact measurement is probably one of the most difficult tasks for funders. This has to do with the complexity of monitoring social and environmental outcomes, but also with attributing the potential benefits to the implemented policy or program.
The main questions to answer usually are:
- What changes have been experienced by the target population since the implementation of the program?
- How to measure and monitor these changes?
- Could the changes in the baseline situation be attributed to the program?
It is therefore essential to build a framework for impact measurement according to the nature of a funder, ideally before the implementation of a program. This framework should include the development of a baseline situation, indicators and benchmarks, and practical tools to monitor impact.
