The next questions will ask you to describe the indicators you will use to assess the progress and, possibly, the success of your project.An indicator is a specific and observable accomplishment or change that could show your project has been a success. Indicators are widely used in project monitoring and evaluation so the work you put in here should help you with other projects in the future.
These sections and indicators are informed by the Conservation Collective group theory of change. Click here
to take a look. We will ask you to think about three different types of indicators in this order:
- Any environmental impacts that might be applicable to your project
- Any social, cultural or economic outcomes that might be applicable to your project
Of these you will only be asked to measure and report on your project deliverables at the end of the funding, but we would still like you to think about what your intended impact and outcomes might be, and reflect on these at the end if possible.
We want to make this process as easy as possible and have put some thought into common indicators that you could use. We have made suggestions and used examples, but you might need to do some thinking to apply this to your own work and suggest relevant indicators for your project if necessary.
